Laura Daniel Davis is Exceptionally Qualified to Steward Our Nation’s Public Lands, Waters

WASHINGTON, D.C.  – The U.S. Senate should swiftly vote to confirm Laura Daniel Davis, who is exceptionally qualified to serve as the U.S. Department of the Interior’s Assistant Secretary for Land and Minerals Management.

“Laura’s depth of experience and her commitment to common-sense and collaborative management of our nation’s public lands and waters are simply unparalleled,” said Collin O’Mara, president and CEO of the National Wildlife Federation. “During her tenure at the National Wildlife Federation, Laura’s strong, collaborative style of leadership proved supremely effective in helping Congress to pass bipartisan legislation to boost forest restoration funding, fully and permanently fund the Land and Water Conservation Fund, and strengthen conservation provisions in the Farm Bill. The Senate should swiftly confirm her nomination so she can continue her work to safeguard our wildlife heritage, bolster local economies, and restore our public lands and waters to ensure they thrive for generations to come.”

Davis served as chief of policy and advocacy at the National Wildlife Federation after serving as chief of staff to Secretaries of the Interior Ken Salazar and Sally Jewell. Davis 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.
