Now for confirmation. Maybe our legislators can get something done back there.
Sally Jewell’s nomination as Interior Secretary won approval (Thursday) morning from the U.S. Senate’s Energy and Natural Resources Committee. The committee voted 19-3 in favor of the Recreational Equipment Inc. (REI) chief executive’s nomination. Sen. Maria Cantwell, D-Wash., a member of the committee, voted in favor of confirmation. Jewell’s nomination by President Barack Obama will go before the full Senate for final approval.
