Mick Mulvaney

The Senate voted 51-49 Thursday to confirm Rep. Mick Mulvaney (R-South Carolina) as director of the Office of Management and Budget, The Hill newspaper reported Thursday.

Jordain Carney writes Mulvaney will administer the federal budget process, lead agency performance evaluations and implement strategies and policies for the acquisition of goods and services in the government.

The report said Republican lawmakers expect Mulvaney to help balance President Donald Trump’s spending plans that include proposed tax reduction and infrastructure funding efforts.

“Mulvaney knows that making government more effective and accountable is conducive to economic growth and he knows that getting our fiscal house in order goes hand in hand with compassion,” Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Kentucky) was quoted as saying.
