The Senate Finance Committee met in executive session to consider the nominations of Representative Tom Price (R-GA) to be Health and Human Services secretary and Steven Mnuchin to be Treasury secretary. Democratic members boycotted the meeting for the second day, so the rule requiring both parties to be present during the vote was suspended. Committee Chair Orrin Hatch (R-UT) said he consulted with the parliamentarian on the proper procedure to move forward with the vote after Democrats on the committee boycotted an earlier scheduled vote. All Republican members were present and voted to move the two nominations to the Senate floor for consideration. After the meeting, Chair Hatch responded to some questions from the press.

Due to technical considerations, this meeting was joined in progress and the vote and a portion of Senator Hatch’s remarks after the vote are not included. Also, the first portion of his comments to the press are not audible until the microphone gets into range. close
