WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Bill Cassidy, M.D. (R-LA), ranking member of the Senate Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions committee, released the following statement on the nomination of Department of Labor (DOL) Deputy Secretary Julie Su to replace Marty Walsh as Secretary of DOL. Cassidy previously voted against her deputy secretary nomination.
“Deputy Secretary Su has a troubling record and is currently overseeing the Department of Labor’s development of anti-worker regulations that will dismantle the gig economy. This does not inspire confidence in her ability to hold her current position, let alone be promoted,” said Dr. Cassidy. “The HELP Committee should have a full and thorough hearing process to evaluate Julie Su’s nomination.”
