Washington, DC – Wyoming Congresswoman Liz Cheney (R-WY) issued the following statement after Democrats on the Senate Energy & Natural Resources Committee voted yesterday to advance Tracy Stone-Manning’s nomination to lead the Bureau of Land Management:

“As I’ve said in a letter to President Biden and in other comments, Tracy Stone-Manning is unfit to lead the Bureau of Land Management. While Senate Republicans on the Energy & Natural Resources Committee did the right thing in unanimously opposing her, I’m disappointed that Democrats looked past her dismal track record and advanced her nomination.
 
“Approximately 48% of Wyoming lands and 68% of our minerals are federally owned. Stone-Manning’s past actions and policy decisions leave no question that she will be detrimental to our state’s interests, and the personal conduct she has demonstrated proves she is not the right person to oversee the largest federal land agency.
 
“The people of Wyoming and the West deserve better. As her nomination heads to the full Senate, I urge my colleagues in that chamber to vote against her confirmation.”
