Congressman Bruce Westermann (R-AK), Ranking Member of the House Natural Resources Committee, is adding a fresh perspective to the committee. He appointed freshman legislator Blake Moore (R-UT) the new Ranking Member of the Natural Resources’ subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations on February 8.
The Subcommittee has primary and general oversight and investigative authority on all activities, policies and programs within the jurisdiction of the Committee. This includes the Department of Interior, Department of Energy, Department of Agriculture, and the Department of Commerce.
“I’m pleased to announce Congressman Blake Moore as the new Ranking Member of the Oversight and Investigations subcommittee,” Westerman said. “Since day one, he has been an active leader on this committee and I know Mr. Moore will continue the great work of the subcommittee in holding the Biden administration accountable to the American people.”
Moore touted the work that Republicans on the Natural Resources Committee have done to increase government accountability for taxpayers while protecting our abundant natural resources.
“Under Ranking Member Bruce Westerman’s leadership, Republicans on the House Natural Resources Committee have worked hard this past year to conduct rigorous, thoughtful oversight over the Biden Administration’s harmful policies that are driving up energy prices, mismanaging our lands, and making America dependent on foreign countries for energy products and critical minerals. As we enter this new year, it is becoming increasingly clear to all Americans that this Administration is on the wrong track, and I look forward to serving in this leadership role to hold it accountable and get us on the right track.”
C3 Solutions has spoken with both Moore and Westerman as a part of our Right Voices interview series. Both are principled conservatives who care deeply for the environment and believe in improving our world for future generations. Under their leadership, conservatives in Congress will continue to offer durable and sustainable solutions to energy, environmental, and climate issues.
