The Wilderness Society Statement on Confirmation of Mike Connor as Deputy Secretary of the Department of the Interior

Feb 27, 2014

“We welcome the confirmation of Mike Connor as Deputy Secretary of the Department of the Interior.  Careful stewardship of publicly owned lands and wild areas is essential to clean water, clean air and to the nation’s $646 billion outdoor recreation economy.  We look forward to working with Mike Connor to fully fund critical conservation programs and ensure that the U.S. takes a thoughtful approach that balances energy development on public lands with the protection of our wild places for our current and future generations.”
