   NOMINATION OF JUSTIN MUZINICH AND NOMINATION OF MICHAEL FAULKENDER

  Mr. WYDEN. Mr. President, today I am lifting my holds on the 
nominations of Justin Muzinich, to be Deputy Secretary of the Treasury 
and Michael Faulkender to be Assistant Secretary of the Treasury for 
Economic Policy, both of which were reported favorably from the Finance 
Committee. I had placed holds on these nominations until the Treasury 
Department agreed to provide the Senate Finance Committee with certain 
information I had requested in connection with the committee's 
oversight of the Treasury Department.
  Working with Chairman Hatch, I reached an agreement under which the 
Treasury Department has cooperated with the Finance Committee on a 
number of my requests.
  For these reasons, I will no longer object to any unanimous consent 
request concerning the nominations of Mr. Muzinich and Mr. Faulkender.
