NRA’s Cox Pens Roll Call Article Supporting Ryan Zinke

posted on February 16, 2017

In a Wednesday op-ed at rollcall.com, NRA-ILA Executive Director Chris W. Cox made the case for the U.S. Senate’s confirmation of U.S. Rep. Ryan Zinke, President Donald Trump’s nominee to head the Department of Interior.

“As a native Montanan, Zinke has a deep appreciation for wildlife and conservation,” Cox wrote. “In addition, he understands the importance of public land access for all hunters and outdoorsmen.”

Just as important, Cox said, is the fact that Zinke understands the important role played by hunters.

“The fact is that hunters are America’s true conservationists,” Cox wrote. “We know that sound wildlife management is critical in the protection of our natural resources. As a sportsman, Ryan Zinke holds this view. All Americans can trust Rep. Zinke to manage our lands and wildlife through sound science, not emotion or political agendas.”

Cox added: “Having an interior secretary intent on preserving America’s longstanding hunting heritage for current and future generations will be a welcome change.”
