Tuesday, January 19, 2021

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Senator Debbie Stabenow, a senior member of the U.S. Senate Committee on Finance, released this statement following the committee’s hearing on Dr. Janet Yellen’s nomination to be Secretary of the Treasury. 


“This year has brought so much hardship to American families. It is clear from the hearing today that Dr. Yellen understands the severity of this crisis and is extremely qualified to lead our incoming President’s plan to get Americans back to work. It is very important we don’t have a gap in leadership at the Department of Treasury during this critical time in our country. I urge the Senate to confirm her nomination as soon as possible.”
