Washington (April 17, 2003) - President George W. Bush reiterated his call to the Senate to confirm Mark Everson as Commissioner of the Internal Revenue Service.

Everson’s nomination to succeed the now-departed Charles Rossotti as IRS chief has been approved by the Senate Finance Committee, but must go before a full Senate vote.

The Senate is scheduled to reconvene April 28.

Reflecting the President’s position, White House spokesman Ari Fleischer said, "The IRS needs to be an important part of the corporate accountability effort to restore confidence in American business. This requires a commissioner in place to direct the activities of this agency."
