The Senate is poised to vote on former oil lobbyist David Bernhardt’s confirmation as official Interior secretary.
As acting secretary, Bernhardt has shown that he’s more interested in serving the interests of the oil companies that he used to lobby for, like Halliburton, than those of the American people.
He has pushed for oil drilling off America’s coasts and in Alaska’s Arctic National Wildlife Refuge … advocated for rolling back the Endangered Species Act … weakened limits on climate-busting methane for oil and gas companies … and supported dismantling our national monuments. We must mobilize a massive outcry in opposition to this dangerous nomination.
Take action NOW by urging your senators to vote NO on Bernhardt’s confirmation — and tell them that we won’t stop fighting to protect our public lands, oceans, and wildlife.
The Senate is poised to vote on former oil lobbyist David Bernhardt’s confirmation as Interior secretary. Urge your senators to vote NO and keep fighting to protect our public lands and waters.
