ARLINGTON, Va., Feb. 16, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Society of Chemical Manufacturers & Affiliates (SOCMA) today congratulates Representative Mick Mulvaney of South Carolina on being named Director of the White House Office of Management and Budget. SOCMA Managing Director of Government Relations Robert F. Helminiak released the following statement on the appointment:
"We congratulate Director Mulvaney on his confirmation and look forward to working with him and the Administration. Having previously represented a district with several SOCMA members, the Director is well-aware of the impact regulations can have on manufacturers – and particularly on small and medium-sized businesses. SOCMA recognizes the value of regulations in providing environmental and health benefits, and we will continue to actively engage with OMB throughout the regulatory process. We hope the Director will lead a renewed effort to give a more accurate consideration of the costs of proposed rules during that process."
