Today, the House Committee on Natural Resources held a full committee markup and favorably reported six bills out of committee. Committee Chairman Bruce Westerman (R-Ark.) released the following statement in response:
"Today marks another productive day in the House Committee on Natural Resources, where we are working to keep our Commitment to America and deliver results for the American people. The bills we advanced in a bipartisan manner will establish stronger wildfire fighting strategies, support tribal sovereignty, create job opportunities for American veterans, allow for the continued operations of western water and power projects, protect historic sites and address increasing interactions between anglers and sharks. We consistently hear from our constituents that lack of access and transparency under the Biden administration are among their biggest concerns. These bills are an important step in addressing the needs of Americans an improving the lives and livelihoods of our communities. Today's success is a testament to the hard work by members of this committee and I look forward to moving these bills on through the House and ultimately signed into law."
