DENVER -- Western Energy Alliance released reaction to the conclusion of hearings held by the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee for Rep. Debra Haaland’s nomination as Interior Secretary. The following quote is attributable to Alliance President Kathleen Sgamma:
“I’m encouraged that Rep. Haaland is rising to the occasion. She recognized the importance of oil and natural gas to the Interior Department and country throughout her confirmation hearing. The fact she acknowledged that there has to be some moderation to her personal opinions and that radical environmentalism doesn’t translate well into governance is a good first step.
