Washington, D.C. – House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (CA-23) released the following statement on the nomination of Mick Mulvaney as the new director of the Office of Management and Budget:

“I want to congratulate my friend, Mick Mulvaney, on becoming the next director of the Office of Management and Budget. Mick is clear-eyed about the problems facing our nation. He knows how onerous the regulatory burden on our people and businesses has become, and he has long been an advocate for restraining our government’s worst spending impulses. I look forward to working with Mick to strengthen our nation’s fiscal footing and break the restraints holding us back from widespread economic growth.”
