WATCH LIVE: HHS Nom Tom Price Testifies In Front Of Senate Committee

AP

Rep. Tom Price (R-GA), President-elect Donald Trump’s pick for Health and Human Services secretary, appears in front of the Senate Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions committee on Wednesday. The hearing is not his formal confirmation hearing — that will fall to the Senate Finance Committee — but Price is answering the HELP committee’s questions as a courtesy, as it has an overlapping jurisdiction over the HHS.

The Trump administration’s plans for repealing Obamacare as well as allegations that Price engaged in shady stock trades, are expected to come up.

The hearing begins at 10 a.m. ET. Watch live below:
