WASHINGTON, DC – The League of Conservation Voters (LCV) President Gene Karpinski released this statement following the bipartisan vote in the Senate today to confirm Sally Jewell to be Interior Secretary:

“The Senate sent a strong message today by confirming Sally Jewell with an overwhelming bipartisan majority. Sally Jewell will be an effective leader at the Interior Department and will work tirelessly to promote conservation and protect our national treasures. There’s nothing partisan about standing up for the environment and public health, and we hope Republicans and Democrats continue working together and swiftly confirm Gina McCarthy, just like they did when she was nominated to lead the EPA’s clean air division.”
