CONGRESSIONAL OVERSIGHT COMMITTEE IMPLORES TRUMP ADMINISTRATION TO PICK OPM DIRECTOR - February 8, 2017
House Oversight Leaders Push Trump to Name OPM Chief Quickly
By Amelia Gruber, Government Executive
A bipartisan group of House oversight leaders is urging President Trump to move quickly in nominating a permanent director of the Office of Personnel Management.
The personnel agency needs a “strong and capable” leader fast, said House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, and ranking member Elijah Cummings, D-Md., in a Feb. 6 letter to Trump. Chaffetz and Cummings were joined by leaders of two oversight subcommittees on both sides of the aisle: Reps. Mark Meadows, R-N.C.; Gerry Connolly, D-Va.; Will Hurd, R-Texas; and Robin Kelly, D-Ill.
