Chief executive of outdoor retailer REI Sally Jewell sat down before the Senate Energy & Natural Resources Committee to answer their questions about why she should be the next Secretary of the Interior.

It is, after all, a big job - managing more than 618 million acres of federally owned land. The Wilderness Society is pleased to see another lover of the outdoors nominated to the post, and Jewell's dedication to conservation was on display at the hearing. We live-tweeted the hearing over on @WildernessNow, our public policy oriented Twitter feed.
