WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The U.S. House Energy and Commerce Committee said on Monday that Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius is expected to appear before the panel on Oct. 30 to answer questions about the troubled rollout of President Barack Obama’s healthcare law.

The Republican-controlled committee, in a statement, also said lead contractors for implementation of the law, also known as Obamacare, will testify at a separate hearing on Thursday about their role in the rollout.

CGI, Serco, and Equifax have confirmed that they will send representatives, and QSSI has also been invited to appear, the committee said.
