WASHINGTON, D.C., April 11, 2019 -

Today, House Natural Resources Committee Ranking Republican Rob Bishop (R-Utah) released the following statement on the confirmation of David Barnhardt as the Secretary of the Department of the Interior.

After decades of mismanagement and regulatory abuse, the Department of the Interior and the communities impacted by its decisions will greatly benefit with David Bernhardt at the top.  He is uniquely qualified to lead the Department and continue important regulatory reforms to improve land management, limit prior executive abuse, expand conservation, and advance greater public access to our public lands. I congratulate David on today’s confirmation.”
