Kaine Statement On Nomination Of Mick Mulvaney As OMB Director

WASHINGTON, DC – U.S. Senator Tim Kaine, a member of the Senate Budget Committee, released the following statement following President-elect Trump’s announcement that he will nominate Rep. Mick Mulvaney to be Director of the Office of Management and Budget (OMB): 

“I’m worried by President-elect Trump's nomination of Rep. Mike Mulvaney as Director of OMB due to his past unwillingness to support bipartisan budget compromises, his pro-shutdown record, his advocacy for slashing federal services and workers and his goal of defunding Planned Parenthood. As a member of the Budget Committee, and as a Senator who represents more than 170,000 federal employees, I intend to question Rep. Mulvaney on his approach to budgeting and vision for this important agency.”
