WASHINGTON (AP) -- Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius is returning to Capitol Hill for fresh questioning about the health care law.


   She'll be hearing Wednesday from senators with growing lists of concerns about President Barack Obama's crowning legislative achievement.


   Sebelius was due to appear before the Senate Finance Committee. Its chairman, Montana Democratic Sen. Max Baucus, was a chief author of the 2010 law. But even he has concerns about the balky Healthcare.gov website and the potential security risks it poses for consumers' private information.


   Utah Sen. Orrin Hatch, the panel's top Republican, is also worried about people whose insurers are dropping them because their current policies don't meet the law's higher requirements.


   Sebelius testified to a House committee last week and apologized for the problem-plagued startup of the program.
