WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) today made this statement on Inez Tenenbaum’s nomination to serve as Chair of the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC). Graham introduced Tenenbaum at a Senate Commerce Committee hearing this morning in Washington.
“American consumers will be in good hands with Inez Tenenbaum at the helm of the Consumer Product Safety Commission. She has a wealth of executive experience and has been intimately involved in consumer advocacy issues as an attorney.
“The Chairman of CPSC holds the public trust and I could not think of a better person to hold this position. Inez is someone everyone respects, whether you agree with her or not. She will look out for American consumers and provide the agency with the leadership it needs.
“It is a big honor for South Carolina to have her nominated for this position. President Obama has made an outstanding selection in nominating Inez Tenenbaum and I look forward to seeing her confirmed by the Senate.”
