Treasury’s Tax Law Architect, Justin Muzinich, Is Tapped as Deputy Secretary

New York Times reports Justin Muzinich as the top aide to Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin. This role has been vacant for the past year. Trump nominates Muzinich, a Wall Street veteran with a more moderate flare this week.

Muzinich is relatively young but comes with a lot of valuable experience. At 40 years old he played a key role in passing the 1.5 trillion dollar tax overhaul and instrumental to the passage of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. He also was a policy advisor under Jeb Bush, bringing some relevant political experience to the position.

The appointment awaits Senate confirmation.
