Bishop Welcomes Rep. Gianforte to the Natural Resources Committee

Today, the House Republican Steering Committee appointed Rep. Greg Gianforte (R-MT) to the House Committee on Natural Resources. Rep. Gianforte will serve on the Subcommittee on Federal Lands and the Subcommittee on Water, Power and Oceans. Chairman Rob Bishop (R-UT) issued the following statement:  

“I’m excited to welcome Rep. Gianforte to our team. Greg brings western values and a wealth of knowledge to the Committee and I look forward to working with him during the 115th Congress. Together we will tackle issues that are important to the way of life to Montanans and Americans all across the country.”

I am grateful for the opportunity to work on behalf of hard-working Montanans on the House Committee on Natural Resources,” Rep. Gianforte said.This committee was my first choice because it’s critically important we protect our Montana way of life from federal overreach and be able to responsibly develop our natural resources. I look forward to working on repealing unnecessary regulations that threaten good-paying Montana jobs and delivering comprehensive forest reform that puts our timber workers back to work, reduces the risk of wildfires and improves the health of our forests.”
