Washington, DC – Today, U.S. Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) voted to confirm Janet Yellen as Secretary of the U.S. Department of Treasury.

“Today I voted to confirm Janet Yellen as Treasury Secretary. Secretary Yellen recognizes that right now we must prioritize helping our fellow Americans who are struggling due to the COVID-19 pandemic. As Federal Reserve Chair, she has demonstrated her willingness to support an economy that fosters good jobs and wages for the American people.
