The Senate voted 98-1 Wednesday to confirm Dr. Louis Sullivan as secretary of Health and Human Services, and 99-0 to confirm James D. Watkins as energy secretary. The sole dissenting vote on Sullivan was cast by Sen. Jesse Helms, R-N.C., who said he was disturbed that the Atlanta physician has declined to take a position on several abortion-related issues. Sen. Lloyd Bentsen, D-Texas, praised Sullivan's commitment to providing health care for the needy. Sullivan will be the only black in President Bush's Cabinet. Watkins, a retired admiral, received the "daunting challenge" of refurbishing the Energy Department's crippled network of nuclear weapons factories. Also, William Bennett, named Bush's drug czar, appeared before the Senate Judiciary Committee, and Edward J. Derwinski appeared for a second day before the Veterans Affairs Committee.
