Elise Viebeck, Staff Writer, The Hill Newspaper

Head of the Office of Management and Budget Sylvia Mathews Burwell has a tough road ahead if she's lucky enough to be confirmed as the next Health and Human Services secretary. President Barack Obama tapped her last week to replace Kathleen Sebelius. Burwell will go from the small, inside-the-White-House agency to a sprawling institution that, with Obamacare, is in the eye of the political storm. Elise Viebeck, staff writer at The Hill Newspaper, told Federal Drive hosts Tom Temin and Emily Kopp that Burwell will face five big challenges.

President Barack Obama aims to stop the National Security Agency from collecting bulk telephone metadata. Instead, he wants phone companies to store the data and make it available to the NSA with a judge's permission. He's asked Congress for a legislative fix to NSA surveillance within 90 days. The whole program expires next year, so there's pressure to do something. Julian Hattem, staff writer for The Hill newspaper, tells Federal Drive with Tom Temin and Emily Kopp what the prospects are for a new law now.
