Laura Daniel Davis’ Nomination Underscores President’s Commitment to Collaborative, Prudent Management of U.S. Lands, Waters

WASHINGTON, D.C. — The nomination of Laura Daniel Davis to serve as the U.S. Department of the Interior’s Assistant Secretary for Land and Minerals Management underscores the president’s commitment to collaborative and prudent management of U.S. public lands and waters. Davis, who served as chief of policy and advocacy at the National Wildlife Federation and served as chief of staff to Secretaries of the Interior Ken Salazar and Sally Jewell, will bring decades of public and nonprofit sector experience to the role, which oversees the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management and the Bureau of Land Management.

“There’s no one better to oversee the wise stewardship of our lands and waters than Laura Daniel Davis,” said Collin O’Mara, president and CEO of the National Wildlife Federation. “Laura brought a smart and collaborative approach to her work at the National Wildlife Federation, and we’re excited to see how she brings her leadership, experience, and problem-solving to the some of the most important challenges facing people and wildlife alike. We urge the U.S. Senate to swiftly confirm her nomination for this vital role, so she can work on behalf of the American people and our wildlife heritage.”
