Interior Nominee To Face Questions About Ties To Industry During Confirmation Hearing


March 27, 2019

Democrats are likely to question acting Interior Secretary David Bernhardt over his connections with industry during his senate confirmation hearing Thursday. The former oil and gas lobbyist has been criticized in recent months for appearing to help out clients he used to represent.

“Bernhardt’s history as a lobbyist with ties to fossil fuel companies raises serious questions about his commitment to honoring the mission of the Department of the Interior to conserve and manage the natural resources and cultural heritage of America,” wrote Senator Catherine Cortez Masto (D-Nev.) in a statement following Bernhardt’s nomination last month.
