The Senate Finance Committee voted overwhelmingly on Wednesday to approve the nomination of Sylvia Mathews Burwell as U.S. health secretary. The 21-3 decision, with three Republican lawmakers voting 'no,' sends Burwell's nomination to the Senate floor for a final confirmation vote, that could come after lawmakers return from a one-week break for the U.S. Memorial Day holiday, which begins on Monday.
