Commander… Congressman… Secretary of the Interior Zinke

After over a month of delays, Ryan Zinke became Secretary of the Interior yesterday.

MarketWatch.com is reporting:

The Senate on Wednesday confirmed Ryan Zinke as Interior Department secretary, putting him in position to work toward unraveling various Obama-era environmental rules, though he is also expected to emphasize conservation issues important to President Donald Trump’s sons.

Zinke, a Republican congressman from Montana, was confirmed in a 68-31 vote, becoming one of a few of Trump’s cabinet nominees to receive support from a significant number of Democratic senators, who said they liked his stated commitment to conservation.
