WASHINGTON — Many may say it’s long long overdue.

The Senate Judiciary Committee is scheduled to hold a hearing next week for Michele Leonhart, who was nominated to head the DEA on Feb. 2, according to the website Main Justice. Leonhart has been heading the agency on an interim basis since 2007.

The Nov. 17 hearing will also be for Stacia Hylton, who has been nominated to head the U.S. Marshals Service, Main Justice reported.

Many DEA agents have suggested the White House doesn’t care about the DEA and has been lax about  pushing for a confirmation hearing.
