WASHINGTON, June 2 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Speaker Nancy Pelosi held a press availability with Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius before their meeting in the Capitol this afternoon. Below are their remarks:

Speaker Pelosi. Good afternoon. It is a personal privilege to welcome the Secretary to the Speaker's office. Both of us went to Trinity College in Washington, D.C., so we've had - of course the Secretary went there long after I was there but she is a source of great pride to all of us.

Her appointment as Secretary of HHS is a great one and I commend President Obama for this excellent appointment.

As Governor of Kansas, Secretary Sebelius was a national figure who took the lead on so many difficult issues. And now as Secretary of HHS, she is here to help write a health care reform bill for our country -- to make America healthier, to make our students have prevention, to make investments in science and technology. And to do so with fewer errors and better health care.

So for this, and other reasons, and the entire gamut of issues that the Secretary of HHS has to deal with we absolutely we could not be in better hands than with Secretary Kathleen Sebelius. Welcome to the office.

Secretary Sebelius. Thank you Madam Speaker. I'm just delighted to not only have an opportunity to serve in this historic Administration but certainly, serving with my Trinity sister, Speaker Pelosi.

I was thrilled at her becoming speaker and now even more pleased that I have opportunity to work closely with her on health reform and food safety systems and other issues dealing with children and families -- on a whole host of issues that affect the American people day in and day out and I know they are a passion of hers and certainly they are passions of mine, and passions of the President.

So we have a great op
