Ranking Member Grijalva: DOI Reorganization is Zinke, Bernhardt “Smashing the Department to Pieces and Telling Employees to Pick up the Mess”
Washington, D.C. – Ranking Member Raúl M. Grijalva (D-Ariz.) released the following statement on recent reports that the Trump administration’s reorganization of the Interior Department is expected to be complete by July 1, 2019.
“Secretary Zinke and Deputy Secretary Bernhardt are smashing the Interior Department to pieces and telling employees to pick up the mess. The organizational plan described here is unworkable for a number of reasons and demands oversight that Republicans on this Committee have conspicuously failed to provide. This should not be the first time Democrats on the Committee of jurisdiction learn about these plans, and should we hold a House majority in January, we will get to the bottom of why this work was done without congressional awareness.”
