Banking Committee Approves HUD Nominee

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Mike Crapo (R-Idaho), Chairman of the United States Senate Committee on Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs, released the following statement on the Committee’s approval of Dr. Benjamin Carson, of Michigan, to be Secretary of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).  

“Dr. Carson has achieved a great deal of success during his impressive and accomplished career, and I was encouraged by his recent testimony before the Committee. He is committed to carrying forth the mandate of HUD and learning more from people directly affected by HUD policies. Now that his nomination has been voted favorably out of the Committee, it is my hope that the full senate will follow suit in a timely manner.”
