Luján Meets with Health and Human Services Secretary Nominee Xavier Becerra

Nambé, N.M. ­– U.S. Senator Ben Ray Luján (D-N.M.), a member of the Committee on Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions (HELP), issued the following statement after meeting virtually with California Attorney General Xavier Becerra, President Biden’s nominee for Secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS):

“Earlier today, I spoke with Attorney General Xavier Becerra, a friend and former House colleague of mine whom President Biden nominated to helm the Department of Health and Human Services. As the nation continues to combat the COVID-19 pandemic, this is a crucial position that requires a strong leader to guide our nation’s public health response. As a longtime defender of quality, affordable health care, Xavier Becerra would bring the commitment and vision needed to help Americans weather this crisis.

“During our conversation, I spoke of the importance of getting vaccine shots into the arm of every New Mexican, expanding access to health care through telemedicine, and addressing the health care workforce shortage hurting our state. As a member of the HELP Committee, I look forward to learning more about Attorney General Becerra’s plans for HHS during his confirmation hearing next week.”
