Zinke Confirmation Vote Coming This Week

posted on February 27, 2017

The U.S. Senate is set to hold a confirmation vote this week for U.S. Rep. Ryan Zinke, President Donald Trump’s nominee for secretary of the 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.
