Senator Warren's Statement on the Nomination of Peter Oppenheim

Washington, DC - Senator Warren released a statement today on the nomination of Peter Oppenheim to serve as Assistant Secretary for Legislation and Congressional Affairs at the Department of Education (ED).

"I'm going to hold Mr. Oppenheim accountable to his commitments, and I look forward to working with him to rebuild lines of communications with the Department."
