On Wednesday, President Bush tapped Doctor, former Senate Majority Leader, and ONE Vote ’08 Co-Chair, Bill Frist to serve on the Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC) board.
The MCC is U.S. government program that rewards countries that do right by their citizens through long-term, larger than typical grants. Beyond working as an incentive against corruption, the process is additionally unique because it is transparent and citizen led.
“I’m delighted at the opportunity to serve on a board that reflects the absolute necessity of having transparency and accountability tied to our developmental foreign aid,” Frist said.
The U.S. Senate must vote to confirm the senator’s new MCC position.
