NRA Lauds Trump Selection For Interior Head

posted on December 19, 2016

The National Rifle Association is speaking out in support of President-elect Donald Trump’s selection of Congressman Ryan Zinke—an avid hunter and former Navy SEAL—to head the U.S. Department of the Interior.

“On behalf of our 5 million members, we commend President-Elect Donald Trump for nominating Congressman Ryan Zinke of Montana to be our next Secretary of the Interior,” said Chris W. Cox, executive director of NRA’s Institute for Legislative Action. “The sportsmen and women of this nation have long waited for an Interior Secretary who understands the need to preserve America’s outdoor heritage for generations to come. Ryan Zinke will champion those traditions with the devotion of a true outdoorsman while serving as our next Secretary of the Interior.”

During his tenure in the U.S. House of Representatives, Zinke, a lifelong hunter, has served on the Natural Resources Committee, as well as the Armed Services Committee.
