FreedomWorks Statement in Response to Confirmation of Eugene Scalia as Labor Secretary

WASHINGTON, D.C. — In response to the Senate’s confirmation today of Eugene Scalia as Secretary of Labor, Adam Brandon, FreedomWorks President, commented:

“Eugene Scalia’s confirmation today is a victory in the fight against outdated, burdensome workplace regulations that neither protect employees nor encourage job and wage growth. American employees and employers alike will benefit from an experienced and qualified Secretary Scalia.

“FreedomWorks also applauds Senate Republicans for continuing to do their job of confirming President Trump’s outstanding nominees to key positions in order to advance a bold, conservative, small government agenda.”

In the final hours before the vote, FreedomWorks grassroots activists sent nearly 36,000 messages to senators urging them to confirm Eugene Scalia as Secretary of Labor.
