WASHINGTON, DC – League of Conservation Voters (LCV) President Gene Karpinski released this statement following the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee’s vote today to send President Obama’s nomination of Sally Jewell to be Secretary of Interior to the full Senate: 

“The Committee’s strong bipartisan support of Sally Jewell’s nomination should clear the way for quick confirmation by the full Senate. President Obama has already doubled our use of renewable energy and protected some of our most cherished landscapes, but there’s a lot more work to do. That’s why we need Sally Jewell leading the Interior Department and working every day to protect public lands and promote conservation.”
