Congressman Andy Biggs Supports CFPB Acting Director Mick Mulvaney
GILBERT, ARIZONA - Congressman Biggs released the following statement to address the current transition at the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau:
“I support President Donald Trump’s designation of Mick Mulvaney as Acting Director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB). The President was well within his constitutional right to make this appointment under the Vacancies Act.
“The Obama administration created the CFPB to be one of the most powerful and least accountable agencies in U.S. history. The agency was designed not to be accountable to anyone, including the President and the U.S. Congress. I trust that Acting Director Mulvaney will refocus the CFPB’s efforts to actually protect consumers and away from a bureau that served the whims of their Director.”
Congressman Andy Biggs is a first-term Representative from Arizona’s Fifth Congressional District, representing parts of Chandler, Gilbert, Mesa, and Queen Creek.
