Republicans are looking to turn Congresswoman Deb Haaland’s confirmation hearing into prime-time viewing material for Fox News.
Senator John Barasso of Wyoming, the ranking member of the Energy and Natural Resources Committee, said in a statement that the first Native Cabinet nominee’s “radical views are squarely at odds with the responsible management of our nation’s energy resources.”
Senator Steve Daines of Montana, who sits on the same committee, tweeted that he’s “deeply concerned” with the New Mexico congresswoman’s support of the “Green New Deal” and that he will try to block her confirmation.
Senator Bill Cassidy of Louisiana, also on the committee, told E&E News that he would challenge Haaland on the Biden administration’s plan to stop issuing new leases for oil and gas drilling on federal lands.
