I am so proud of her confirmation, not only because she is from West Virginia, but because she truly embodies the best of our state and our country. Sylvia's impressive record has proven that she will be an excellent OMB Director. The fact that she has worked so closely with Erksine Bowles - one of the architects of the best template to get our finances in order - and helped produce the last balanced budget and budget surplus our country enjoyed over a decade ago, proves that she can help us get our long-term fiscal house in order. I look forward to working alongside a fellow West Virginian as we work on commonsense solutions to control our spending and once again become a fiscally responsible nation. The West Virginia values Sylvia embraced while growing up in Hinton will help set our nation's priorities as we solve these tough problems.

Manchin's Message from the Hill to the Mountains

A Matter of Fairness

The Senate is considering legislation that is vital to the livelihood of the retailers you do business with almost every day. It's called the Marketplace Fairness Act, and I am proud to support this proposal because it is a matter of fairness to the business owners in your hometown.  

This piece of legislation is just 11 pages long - pretty short compared to most of the bills we see in the Senate. And it has broad bipartisan support, much more than we typically receive. Three-fourths of the Senate voted to begin debate on it. 

The bipartisan support isn't confined to Washington. Twenty-eight governors - 16 Republicans, 11 Democrats and 1 Independent - support it.
