Representative Kiley Statement Following President Biden’s Decision to Renominate Julie Su
WASHINGTON – Today Representative Kevin Kiley (R-CA), Chairman of the Workforce Protections Subcommittee, released a statement following President Biden’s decision to renominate Acting Labor Secretary Julie Su’s for Secretary of the Department of Labor (DOL). The nomination was returned to the White House without a vote for confirmation during the first session of the 118th Congress.
“It is beyond belief that President Biden has chosen to re-nominate his failed nominee. The Senate rejected Julie Su as Labor Secretary on a bipartisan basis last year because of her gross mismanagement and anti-worker agenda. There is absolutely no reason to expect a different result this year. The length this Administration will go to weaken our economy and workforce is astounding,” said Rep. Kiley.
