Jack Lew's nomination was approved Wednesday on a 71-26 vote.
The chairman of the Senate Budget committee praised the nominee, and the vote, in a statement issued afterward.
"Jack understands what it takes to tackle our economic and fiscal challenges in a balanced and bipartisan way," said Sen. Patty Murray, D-Wash., "and I am very glad that the Senate voted today to confirm him with strong bipartisan support so he can get to work."
