Senator Lankford Meets with Budget Nominee Rep. Mick Mulvaney
WASHINGTON, DC – Senator James Lankford (R-OK) today met with Congressman Mick Mulvaney (R-SC), President-elect Donald Trump’s nominee to be the director of the Office of Management and Budget.
“Mick Mulvaney shares my commitment to address the debt and to reduce the burdensome regulations that plague US economic growth,” said Lankford. “I look forward to Mick’s confirmation hearings, and I am encouraged that he will make it through the process. The nation’s $20 trillion debt, and the problems that come with it, is the single most important issue that faces our country’s future. We need someone like Mick to help root out government waste, reduce burdensome and stifling federal regulations, and address the structural issues with the national debt. Congress and the administration must work together to address these issues in a real and meaningful way.”
Mulvaney is currently serving in his fourth-term representing the fifth district of South Carolina. He serves on the House Financial Services Committee and the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee. His private sector experience includes starting multiple businesses across many fields of law, real estate, homebuilding, and restaurants.
Lankford serves on the Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee and chairs the Subcommittee on Regulatory Affairs and Federal Management. Lankford also serves on the Senate Committee on Appropriations.
