From the Salt Lake Tribune:
Senators may block confirmation to force drug-import vote
A bipartisan group of senators may block former Utah Gov. Mike Leavitt's confirmation as health and human services secretary to force a vote on legalizing the reimportation of U.S.-made drugs from Canada.

Holding Leavitt's confirmation hostage is a strategy now under consideration by sponsors of legislation aimed at allowing Americans to buy cheaper prescription medications north of the border, according to a spokesman for Sen. Byron Dorgan, D-N.D.
