Washington, D.C. - Senator Tom Cotton (R-Arkansas) today released the following statement after meeting with Treasury Secretary nominee, Steven Mnuchin:

"Steven Mnuchin is prepared and ready to implement President-elect Trump's economic agenda. In our wide-ranging conversation, Steven and I discussed the urgent need to get our economy moving again for all Americans, especially those who work with their hands and on their feet, who haven't seen a pay raise in decades. We also discussed the Treasury Department's key role in helping community banks grow, enforcing sanctions, and disrupting terrorist finances. I look forward to supporting his nomination."
