How to Become a Bounty Hunter



Senate Judiciary Gives Nod to Leonhart for DEA and Hylton for U.S. Marshal

WASHINGTON — The Senate Judiciary Committee on Wednesday gave the nod to Michele Leonhart to head the DEA and Stacia Hylton to head up the U.S. Marshals Service. The approval came by way of a voice vote on both presidential nominees.

The nominations now go before the full Senate for a final vote.

For Leonhart, who has been acting head of the DEA since 2007, the nod by the Judiciary brought her one step closer to getting the permanent post.

Some current and former DEA agents have complained that the Obama administration has been slow to push the confirmation through.
