Senate Must Quickly Approve Smith As USAID Administrator To Help Shape Development Agenda, Respond To Crises

The Hill: The Senate must act fast to confirm Gayle Smith
Molly Elgin-Cossart, senior fellow at the Center for American Progress

“…If the United States is to play a role in shaping the future development agenda and most effectively answer the call to respond to current crises, we need a new USAID administrator in place quickly. Otherwise, the U.S. will be sidelined at this crucial juncture in international development. Time is short, and the Senate must act fast to confirm Gayle Smith and empower U.S. leadership in global development” (5/5).
