U.S. Secretary of the Interior Ryan Zinke has announced the appointment of Greg Sheehan to the position of Deputy Director of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
Prior to the appointment, Sheehan worked as Director of the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources. Chairman of the House Committee on Natural Resources, Rob Bishop (UT-01) issued the following statement regarding the appointment:
“It is exciting to see another Utah voice added to this Administration. While serving on our Natural Resources committee, Secretary Zinke was able to witness first-hand Utah values applied to the needs of public lands. The Secretary now has another Utah ally to address the fish and wildlife issues in America, and while the scenery is much better in Utah, Greg’s outlook will be a welcome addition to Washington.”
