Washington, DC – House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (CA-23) released the following statement on President-elect Trump’s selection of Representative Mick Mulvaney (SC-5) to serve as Director of the Office of Management and Budget:

“Mick is whip-smart and has been deeply involved in the budget process from day one to establish a more effective and accountable government through fiscal restraint and responsibility. What Mick also understands as well as anyone is the weight of the regulatory burden that has been put on American businesses and citizens over the past eight years. In leading the Office of Management and Budget he is prepared to reform our regulatory process to empower Congress and ultimately the American people. He is a terrific selection to begin reforming the way our government works.”
