U.S. Senator John Boozman Urges Support of OPM Nominee

WASHINGTON- U.S. Senator John Boozman (R-AR) urged members of the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee to support the nomination of Dale Cabaniss to serve as the director of the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) while introducing her before the committee on Tuesday.

 Cabaniss served as Republican staff director of the Senate Appropriations Subcommittee on Financial Services and General Government during Boozman’s tenure as chairman. Boozman applauded her leadership for advancing the committee’s appropriations bill. “In 2016, for the first time in the history of the most recent subcommittee jurisdiction, we passed our bill out of the full committee on a bipartisan and unanimous vote. This was no small feat and it would not have happened without Dale’s knowledge and expertise,” Boozman told committee members.

President Donald Trump announced in March his decision to tap Cabaniss to lead the Office of Personnel Management. In addition to her extensive service in the Senate, Cabaniss also served as chairman of the Federal Labor Relations Authority.
