OMB director confirmed

Feb. 16, 2017
The Senate has voted 51 to 49 to confirm Rep. Mick Mulvaney (R-S.C.) for director of the Office of Management and Budget. In addition to helping prepare and administer the federal budget, OMB measures the performance of federal agencies, supervises and coordinates procurement, financial management, and information policies, and plays a role in the approval of major regulations that could significantly impact the economy. As director, Mulvaney will likely be involved with repeal and replacement efforts on the Affordable Care Act.

The Senate Finance Committee will hold a hearing on Seema Verma today ― President Trump’s pick for CMS administrator. AADA staff will be attending the hearing.
