Enzi Statement On Trump Budget Director Nominee U.S. Rep. Mick Mulvaney

WASHINGTON D.C. – Senator Mike Enzi (R-WY), Chairman of the Senate Budget Committee, released the following statement today regarding President-elect Donald J. Trump’s intention to nominate U.S. Representative Mick Mulvaney (R-S.C.) to lead the White House’s Office of Management and Budget (OMB).

“As our nation faces a staggering $20 trillion in debt, I am pleased to see President-elect Trump nominate a fiscal conservative who will help put our nation on a more responsible budgetary path,” said Chairman Enzi.  “As a member of Congress, Rep. Mulvaney understands better than most that America’s budget and spending process is broken, and one of our top priorities should be to provide our nation with a responsible fiscal blueprint that will help guide our spending decisions now and into the future.”

The U.S. Senate Budget Committee has jurisdiction over the Office of Management and Budget and holds confirmation hearings for the Director of the office.
