Kline Statement on Labor Secretary Nominee


Location: Washington, DC

U.S. House Education and the Workforce Committee Chairman John Kline (R-MN) today released the following statement after President Obama nominated Thomas E. Perez to serve as the next secretary for the Department of Labor:

Our country needs a labor secretary who will put America's jobs before his own. To do so, the next secretary must encourage economic growth and competitiveness by rejecting punitive federal regulations and working with Congress to rein in wasteful spending. Troubling allegations in the media and an independent investigation raise concerns about whether Mr. Perez is the right candidate to lead the Department of Labor. I intend to follow closely the confirmation process as the Senate reviews the nominee's qualifications for this important position.
