The National Cattlemen’s Beef Association (NCBA) and the Public Lands Council (PLC) today released the following statement in response to the news of Representative Deb Haaland's (NM-01) future nomination to lead the U.S. Department of the Interior:
"In her representation of New Mexico, Rep. Deb Haaland has had a front-row seat to the complex land management issues that affect ranchers and rural communities every day," said NCBA Executive Director of Natural Resources and PLC Executive Director Kaitlynn Glover. "In this new role she will have the opportunity to work with partners, like ranchers, to ensure the Department is a good land steward and collaborator in rural communities, in a way that also reaffirms grazing rights for thousands of producers across the West. We look forward to working with her on policy that recognizes and supports livestock producers’ role as environmental stewards and protectors of natural resources."
