“PLC and NCBA applaud the Senate’s final confirmation of Joseph Balash to be Assistant Secretary for Land and Minerals Management, after months of needless delay. A fully staffed Department of the Interior is critical to the business operation of western ranches, and we are pleased to see another critical position filled. We continue to urge the White House and the Senate to prioritize the nomination and swift confirmation of other essential personnel, including Directors of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Services and the Bureau of Land Management – positions which have been without permanent leadership for nearly a year.”
