Today, Congressman Blake Moore issued the following statement on his assignments to serve as Vice Ranking Member on the House Natural Resources Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations as well as on the National Parks, Forests, and Public Lands Subcommittee.
“It is an honor to be Vice Ranking Member of the Natural Resources Oversight and Investigations Subcommittee and on the National Parks, Forests, and Public Lands Subcommittee,” said Congressman Blake Moore. “On Oversight and Investigations, I look forward to using this leadership opportunity to hold federal agencies accountable as we work across the aisle for more effective management of our lands and resources nationwide. It is imperative that we conduct proper oversight of the administration’s policies regarding our resources, and I will advocate for the interests of the First District and Utah as we demand transparency and efficiency.
“Likewise, I am looking forward to working with my colleagues on the National Parks, Forests, and Public Lands Subcommittee to promote sound policies of conservation, access, and economic development for our nation’s federally owned lands. These issues are particularly important to Utah, which is home to some of the richest and most valuable resources in the country. Utahns know our lands can be managed better, and I am ready to work on their behalf to make that a reality.”
