With Confirmation Vote Nearing, Zinke Needs Continued Support

A confirmation vote in the U.S. Senate is expected soon for U.S. Rep. Ryan Zinke, President Donald Trump’s nominee to head the U.S. Department of Interior.

As we’ve noted before, Zinke is a hunter, angler and former Navy SEAL who understands the important role hunting and the shooting sports play in the stewardship of our nation’s public lands. In fact, during a confirmation hearing last month, Zinke said, “It was on these lands that my father [taught me] to hunt and fish, and the Boy Scouts taught me the principles [of] environmental stewardship and the importance of public access.”

During his time in Congress, Zinke has also been a strong supporter of legislation that would greatly enhance hunting and shooting opportunities on America’s public lands.
