Bishop and Labrador Letter to Secretary Zinke


WASHINGTON, D.C., May 3, 2017 - TO: The Honorable Ryan Zinke

FROM: Chairman Rob Bishop and Subcommittee Chairman Raúl Labrador

Dear Secretary Zinke,

We write to express our concerns regarding the administration of two climate change adaptation programs within the Department of the Interior (Interior). One of the programs, Climate Science Centers (CSCs), is led by the U.S. Geological Survey. The second program, Landscape Conservation Cooperatives (LCCs), is principally managed by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. As you are aware, CSCs and LCCs were established by Secretarial Order Number 3289, issued on September 14, 2009 by former Interior Secretary Ken Salazar. The CSCs and LCCs are charged with furthering the Department's directive to "coordinate an effective response" to address the impact climate change will have on land, water, fish, wildlife, and cultural resources managed by the Department.
