Rep. Grijalva Statement on the Firing of Secretary Ryan Zinke

WASHINGTON, D.C.—Today, President Trump fired embattled Secretary of the Department of the Interior Ryan Zinke. In response Rep. Raúl M, Grijalva issued the following statement:

“This is no kind of victory, but I’m hopeful that it is a genuine turning of the page. Secretary Zinke’s successor has a chance to move on from an unfortunate Trump Administration record of environmental mismanagement and decline. A well-managed Interior Department — one that puts the public good ahead of fossil fuel and mining industry demands — can be a boon to the entire country. The next Interior Secretary should respect the American people’s desire for strong environmental standards and an end to corporate favoritism. The Democratic majority on the Natural Resources Committee will be ready to assist in that effort starting in January.”
