Legislative Affairs

​The mission of the office of Assistant Secretary for Legislative Affairs is to advise the Secretary on congressional relations matters in order to assist in the formulation of policy and determining the overall direction of the Department.  The Office serves as the principal contact and coordinator for all Department interaction with the Congress and the Congressional Relations offices in the White House and other Departments and agencies.
The Office develops strategies to implement legislative initiatives, communicates Treasury’s positions to the Congress, and keeps the Department informed of Congressional objectives, concerns, activities, and interests.  In addition, the Office responds directly to Congressional inquiries and facilitates replies from other offices in the Department, monitors the flow of Congressional correspondence to ensure accurate and prompt response, coordinates Departmental testimony before Congressional Committees and advises the Department on Congressional concerns during policy formation.
