Washington—This week, the Senate is considering Russell Vought to be the next Director of the White House Office of Management and Budget. Heritage Action for America released the following statement from Executive Director Jessica Anderson supporting the confirmation:
President Trump made an excellent choice in nominating Russ Vought to lead the OMB, and the Senate should immediately approve his nomination. I have had the privilege of working with Russ firsthand, both at the OMB and Heritage Action, for nearly a decade. I know he is committed to work for the American people and to enact the President’s priorities across the administration. From Heritage Action to the White House, Russ has led the charge against government waste and cumbersome red tape. He has consistently fought against fiscal insanity in the federal budget — that fight is more important now than ever.
Russ Vought is a committed, commonsense conservative and public servant. The Senate should swiftly vote to confirm him.
