ALG urges confirmation of Trump nominees

Nov. 17, 2017, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement urging expedited consideration of President Donald Trump’s nominees for the executive branch:

“It is inexcusable that 10 months after President Donald Trump’s inauguration that many departments and agencies do not have their highest level executive positions filled. The Senate needs to correct this by making it their top priority when they come back from Thanksgiving to at the very least confirm Russ Vought for Office of Management and Budget Deputy Director, Rep. Jim Bridenstine for NASA Administrator, former Rep. Scott Garrett for President of the Export-Import Bank, and Pat Pizzella for Deputy Secretary of Labor. There is simply no excuse to continue disabling President Trump’s ability to manage and reform the federal government by failing to confirm these four exemplary nominees. The Senate needs to get it done, and get it done.”
