Chairman Bishop Letter to Secretary of the Department of the Interior Sally Jewell Regarding Border Security


WASHINGTON, D.C., March 27, 2015 - TO: The Honorable Sally Jewell

FROM: Rob Bishop, Chairman

Dear Secretary Jewell,

The Department of the Interior ("DOI") manages millions of acres on our Southern border under a variety of restrictive laws and regulations.  The Committee on Natural Resources ("Committee") has continually expressed concerns that the resulting impediments to access available to the Department of Homeland Security ("DHS") hinder its ability to secure the border in an efficient and effective manner.
