ABA Statement on Senate Finance Vote on Treasury Secretary

By Rob Nichols, ABA president and CEO

​     “We congratulate Steven Mnuchin on the Senate Finance Committee’s vote to confirm him and look forward to working with the Treasury under his new direction.
     “The Treasury Secretary has a critical role in promoting the overall strength of the economy and examining regulatory programs to ensure they do their part to support economic growth. Mr. Mnuchin has outlined an agenda to address regulatory issues so banks can make more loans and help fuel our nation’s economic growth.  We look forward to working with him and the new administration on policies that will reinforce financial recovery and economic progress.”
