Romney Announces Support for Bernhardt

WASHINGTON— U.S. Senator Mitt Romney (R-UT) today released the following statement in support of David Bernhardt to serve as United States Secretary of the Interior:

“I recently met with Mr. Bernhardt to discuss a wide range of issues impacting Utah, such as the need for greater state and local involvement in public lands issues. Based on our discussion and his years of experience managing federal lands, I believe he has a solid understanding of issues affecting Utah and Western states. I will support his confirmation and look forward to working with the Department of the Interior to ensure that Utah has a voice in public lands decisions.”
