Murray Statement on Reports HHS Secretary Tom Price Used Private Jet for Official Business

(Washington, D.C.) – Senator Patty Murray (D-WA), Ranking Member of the Senate Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions (HELP) Committee, today issued the following statement on press reports that Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Tom Price used a private jet on at least five separate occasions when traveling for official business.

 

“Actions speak louder than words, and despite repeated promises to ‘drain the swamp’ by President Trump and his Administration, these new reports concerning Secretary Price show a clear willingness to skirt basic ethics rules,” said Senator Murray. “I have long called for an investigation into the many questions that still need to be answered on Secretary Price’s potential ethics violations as a Member of Congress and these new reports should absolutely be a part of that greater conversation.”
