WASHINGTON, D.C. – Oregon’s Senator Jeff Merkley, a member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, released the following statement after meeting with Secretary of State nominee Rex Tillerson:

“Mr. Tillerson and I had an extensive and substantive conversation. After talking with him, I still have significant questions about Mr. Tillerson’s foreign policy views and how his four-decade career at one of the largest oil companies in the world prepares him to be our nation’s top diplomat. I look forward to further exploring Mr. Tillerson’s views at his confirmation hearing.”
