OMB Director Jim Nussle’s Statement on Senate Confirmation
WASHINGTON – Today, OMB Director Jim Nussle issued the following statement on his Senate confirmation:
“I am humbled and honored to be confirmed as Director of the Office of Management and Budget. I thank the U.S. Senate for their broad, bipartisan support and will continue to work with members in both chambers of Congress on the important responsibility of delivering results for taxpayers.
“I look forward to helping to develop and implement the President’s agenda by working with Congress on our common goal of balancing the budget and making government more efficient. This includes working with our agencies to ensure they are well managed so that taxpayer dollars are spent wisely, or not at all. We also need to hold the line on spending to maintain a pro-growth, low-tax environment that allows American workers to keep more of their hard-earned money. I am also committed to continuing efforts with Congress to responsibly address our Nation’s biggest long-term fiscal challenge – the unsustainable growth in entitlement spending. It’s a privilege to have the opportunity to work on these important issues on behalf of the President and with a tremendously talented group of professionals at OMB. As always, I want thank my family for their ongoing support of my public service.”
