I've been proud to serve with Congresswoman Haaland and partner with her on the Armed Services Committee over the past two years. She is a strong leader who will bring a vision to the Department of Interior that can truly make our country proud. I look forward to seeing her swiftly confirmed by the Senate and to work side-by-side with her in the coming years."
