WASHINGTON, D.C. – House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Kevin Brady (R-TX) today released the following statement after the Senate voted to confirm Wilbur Ross as Secretary of Commerce:

“Congratulations to Wilbur Ross on being confirmed to lead the Department of Commerce. He has a critical role to play in growing our economy, and I am confident he will deliver results.
