Chairman Price Statement on President-elect Biden Nomination of Congresswoman Marcia Fudge as HUD Secretary
Congressman David Price (NC-04), Chairman of the Transportation, Housing, and Urban Development Appropriations Subcommittee, released a statement on President-elect Joe Biden's decision to nominate Congresswoman Marcia Fudge for Secretary of the Department of Housing and Urban Development:
"I applaud President-elect Biden's decision to select Congresswoman Marcia Fudge to head the Department of Housing and Urban Development. Rep. Fudge is a steadfast champion for working families, spending her time in Congress fighting for better health care, nutrition, economic opportunities, and safe and decent affordable housing. These qualities will serve her well as HUD Secretary at a critical time when the nation faces a pandemic that has not only exposed but exacerbated our national housing crisis. As Chairman of the House "T-HUD" Appropriations Subcommittee, I look forward to working with her to boost resources for affordable housing production and community development, to fight homelessness and eviction, to bolster resiliency in the face of a changing climate, and to restore bedrock fair housing principles that uphold equal opportunity for all our citizens."
