Hatch Comments on Steven Mnuchin Confirmation Hearing

The Senate Finance Committee today announced a hearing on Thursday, January 19, 2017, to consider the nomination of Steven Mnuchin to head the U.S. Treasury Department. Following the announcement, Finance Committee Chairman Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) issued the following statement:

“Mr. Mnuchin is an effective choice to lead our Treasury Department. Getting America’s economy back on track is a top priority for this new administration and his wealth of private sector experience will serve him well in this new role.  He understands that advancing meaningful policies to reform the tax code, promote investment and spur job creation are essential to growing our economy and ensuring middle-class families get to keep more of their paychecks.  I look forward to having Mr. Mnuchin before the Committee to further examine his numerous qualifications to lead the Department.”
