President-elect Donald Trump’s nominee for HHS Secretary, Rep. Tom Price, will sell off stock holdings to avoid potential conflicts of interest.
Price’s ethics agreement and financial disclosure were posted online by the Office of Government Ethics. If confirmed by the Senate, the Republican surgeon from Georgia would divest himself of stock in more than 40 companies. He’ll also resign a position with the American Medical Association, as well as a managing role in a business partnership. Democrats said the move does not clear up concerns about his investment practices.
