Wyden Office Statement on Postponement of Finance Committee Markup

WASHINGTON - The office of Senate Finance Committee Ranking Member Ron Wyden, D-Ore., today released a statement following the decision to postpone the Finance Committee’s vote on Steve Mnuchin until 10am tomorrow morning:

“Democratic Members on the Senate Finance Committee have asked to postpone the markup of Mr. Mnuchin in order to attend the candlelight vigil happening at 6pm this evening.  This delay will allow members to protest the President’s unconstitutional ban on Muslims entering the United States while voting on Mr. Mnuchin’s nomination little more than 12 hours later.” said Rachel McCleery, a spokesperson for the Senate Finance Committee.
