President-Elect Trump has picked Rep. Ryan Zinke (R-Mont.) as his nominee for Interior secretary.
This is probably good news for outdoorsmen as Zinke is a lifelong hunter and angler.
Trump's statement on his decision read in part that Zinke, "has built one of the strongest track records on championing regulatory relief, forest management, responsible energy development and public land issues...America is the most beautiful country in the world and he is going to help keep it that way with smart management of our federal lands. At the same time, my administration’s goal is to repeal bad regulations and use our natural resources to create jobs and wealth for the American people, and Ryan will explore every possibility for how we can safely and responsibly do that.”
Zinke said in a statement, “I will work tirelessly to ensure our public lands are managed and preserved in a way that benefits everyone for generations to come. Most important, our sovereign Indian Nations and territories must have the respect and freedom they deserve.”
This is getting interesting.
Let's see what, if any changes, Zinke brings about.
