WASHINGTON, D.C. — The nomination of Tommy Beaudreau to serve as Deputy Secretary of the Department of the Interior underscores the Biden Administration’s commitment to conserving and restoring our nation’s lands and waters to help recover wildlife and expand opportunities for outdoor recreation.
“Tommy Beaudreau has a tremendous depth of experience working at the Department of Interior, where he demonstrated a strong commitment to bringing diverse groups of people together to ensure that our public lands are managed for multiple uses to benefit wildlife, outdoor recreation, clean energy, and local communities,” said Collin O’Mara, president and CEO of the National Wildlife Federation. “As an avid sportsman, he knows first-hand the immense challenges facing public lands and nearby rural communities as they have been battered by megafires, drought, and other impacts from climate change. We look forward to working with Tommy to restore and bolster the resilience of our public lands so they remain vital and vibrant for generations to come. We urge the Senate to confirm him without delay.”
