Senate Panel Votes to Support Deb Haaland for Interior Secretary

 

The Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources voted 11-9 in favor of recommending Rep. Deb Haaland for Interior secretary, advancing the Native American congresswoman's nomination to the full Senate.

WASHINGTON - In the first week of Women's History Month, New Mexico Rep. Deb Haaland has found a niche way to be celebrated, paving the way to become the first Native American woman to serve as a Cabinet member in the United States government.

On Thursday morning, the Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources voted 11-9 in favor of recommending Haaland - a citizen of the Laguna Pueblo - to the eighth most powerful position in government: Secretary of the United States Department of the Interior.

Sen. Lisa Murkowski, Republican lawmaker from Alaska, was the only party member to cross the aisle and join Democrats' vote to confirm Haaland.
