WASHINGTON, March 1 — United States Senator Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) today released the following statement after meeting today with Alexander Acosta — President Trump’s nominee to become the next United States Secretary of Labor:
“I enjoyed meeting today with Alexander Acosta, who understands how harmful Obama-era labor regulations have made it harder for Americans to create, find, or keep good-paying jobs. I plan to schedule a confirmation hearing promptly after his nomination papers are complete, at which point I look forward to hearing his views on creating an environment for American workers to succeed in a rapidly changing workplace.”
Alexander serves as the chairman of the Senate’s labor committee.
