Ryan Zinke on Government Reform

 

 


Work with states and rebuild national parks

Zinke was nominated for secretary of the interior; here is what we learned from Zinke's hearing with the Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources.

Zinke described his three broad goals if he is confirmed: "The first is to restore trust by working with rather than against local communities and states. I fully recognize that there is distrust, anger, and even hatred against some federal management policies. Being a listening advocate rather than a deaf adversary is a good start. Second, is to prioritize the estimated $12.5 billion in backlog of maintenance and repair in our National Parks. The President elect is committed to a jobs and infrastructure bill, and I am going to need your help in making sure that bill includes shoring up our Nation's treasures. And third, to ensure the professionals on the front line, our rangers and field managers, have the right tools, right resources, and flexibility to make the right decisions that give a voice to the people they serve."
