Responding to the appointment of Liz Birnbaum to head the Minerals Management Service, League of Conservation Voters Legislative Director Tiernan Sittenfeld issued the following statement:

“Secretary Salazar’s choice of Liz Birnbaum to head the Minerals Management Service at the Department of Interior continues the Obama administration’s policy of finding the most competent, well-prepared candidates available to fill important government posts. With deep understanding of the issues at stake, Ms. Birnbaum has been a friend and ally to LCV and to America’s natural heritage throughout her impressive career.  We look forward to working with her to protect America’s mineral resources.”
