Sep 29 2017 - Sustainable Development

This was, again, part of a goal to make hunting and fishing elite, an experience only for the person who can pay for a guide or go a whole week. But it means you limit grandpa, you limit the disabled veteran, you limit the family that goes out for a day to enjoy our public lands.feedback

Sep 29 2017 - Sustainable Development

But here's the difference. TR went on a nice ride with Muir. He hired Pinchot. And that's because Pinchot advocated using science and best practices for management.feedback

Sep 29 2017 - Sustainable Development

I'm a geologist. Science is a wonderful thing: it helps us understand what is going on deep below the surface of the earth. We need to use science to update our understanding of the 1002 area of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge as Congress considers important legislation to responsibly develop there one day. This order takes the important first step in a smart and measured approach to energy development in A.N.W.R.feedback

Aug 24 2017 - Trump Presidency

I've heard this narrative that somehow the land is going to be sold or transferred. That narrative is patently false and shameful. The land was public before and it will be public after. There's an expectation we need to look out 100 years from now to keep the public land experience alive in this country. You can protect the monument by keeping public access to traditional uses.feedback

Aug 21 2017

As the steward of our Indian trust land, what are we going to be 100 years from now? Is there an off ramp?feedback

Aug 17 2017 - Trump Presidency

The racism, bigotry, and hate perpetrated by violent white supremacist groups has no place in America. It does not represent what I spent 23 years defending in the United States military and what millions of people around the globe have died for. We must respond to hate with love, unity and justice. I fully support President Trump and Attorney General Sessions in uniting our communities and prosecuting the criminals to the fullest extent of the law.feedback

Aug 11 2017

I'm confident there's a path forward here that will work. Even if a monument is modified, the land will remain under federal ownership.feedback

As a former geologist, I realize Craters of the Moon is a living timeline of the geologic history of our land on the Great Rift.feedback

Jul 13 2017 - Oil

Some of it was oil and gas price, some of it was, the signal was clear: that we're not in the business as a government to deliver on oil and gas.feedback

Jul 06 2017 - Oil

Jul 02 2017

When you start to drain the swamp, you know what happens? You start to expose serpents.feedback

Jun 14 2017 - Trump Presidency

Rather than designating an area encompassing almost 1.5 million acres as a national monument, it would have been more appropriate to identify and separate the areas that have significant objects to be protected. Additionally, many of the lands in the [monument] are already congressionally or administratively protected.feedback

Jun 02 2017 - Trump Presidency

I certainly don't believe it's a hoax. I do not speak for the president.feedback

May 15 2017

We'll look at what sectors were affected, plus or minus, and that will be part of the recommendation. I'm an optimist. After being on the ground for a few days and talking to people on all sides I think everyone has a lot more in common than previously thought. I think the concern that I have and the president has that when you designate a monument, the local community that's affected should have a voice. The little community, the loggers, the fishermen, those areas that are affected should have a say and a voice.feedback

May 14 2017 - Trump Presidency

Be nice. I always get concerned about what the legacy is going to be 100 years from now. I want to make sure that your children's children and mine look back at this moment and say: 'You know what? We did it right.' And so we're looking at innovative ways to change the way that Interior runs.feedback

May 13 2017

The issue is whether the monument is the right vehicle. What vehicle of public land is appropriate to preserve the cultural identity, to make sure the tribes have a voice and make sure you preserve the traditions of hunting and fishing and public access? There's a lot of monuments that are frankly settled and not controversial at all.feedback

May 08 2017 - Trump Presidency

Of course, the legacy and what I've seen should be preserved, The issue is whether the monument is the right vehicle. President Trump, I'm going to tell you, is a great boss. The reason why I think he felt so strongly about this is he feels like sometimes Washington makes these rules and we don't have a voice. He put this in motion to make sure that local communities count. States count. America counts.feedback

May 08 2017

I'm coming in this thing as a Montanan, a former congressman and now the secretary of the Interior without any predispositions of outcome. I want to make sure that the public has a voice, that the elected officials have a voice. I think, sometimes, the best way to see things is slow and easy with a horse.feedback

May 06 2017

There is no predetermined outcome on any monument.feedback

May 05 2017

We've become so polar on political issues. This should not be a political issue. I'm competitive. You may have heard the president is very competitive, too. We want to win. Our front lines have gotten too thin. Revenue – that helps morale too.feedback

The executive order will direct me as the secretary to review prior monument designations and to suggest legislative changes or modifications to the monuments. I'm not going to predispose what the outcome is going to be. I think the concern that I have and the president has is that when you designate a monument, the local community affected should have a voice.feedback

Apr 26 2017

In some cases national monuments have resulted in the loss of jobs, reduced wages and loss of public access. We feel the public, the people the monuments affect, should be considered and given a meaningful voice. As a kid I grew up in Montana, in the west, where a lot of these monuments have taken place. This executive order is long overdue. I'm a lifetime supporter and admirer of Teddy Roosevelt and the president is the same.feedback

Apr 25 2017

In the case of significant public land use, we feel the public should be considered. That's why the president is asking for a review. The core of this is to make sure public has a voice.feedback

I expect each DOI employee to cultivate a work environment of dignity and respect that a reasonable person would not find hostile. It is our individual and collective responsibility to ensure that our interactions with each other, contractors who support our mission, and the public are free of harassment, discrimination or retaliation. Bullying, degrading and intimidating behavior is not acceptable and serves to dishonor the mission and values of our department.feedback

Apr 03 2017

As a veteran myself, I tell you, I am thrilled at the President's decision to donate the check he did today.feedback

Apr 01 2017

We have not been a good partner in this. The amount of bureaucracy and paperwork and stalling in many ways has created great hardship on some of the poorest tribes. A war on coal is a war on the Crow people. President Trump has promised to end the war.feedback

Mar 30 2017

For far too many local communities, energy on public lands has been more of a missed opportunity and has failed to include local consultation and partnership.feedback

Mar 29 2017 - Mexico

At the end of the day what's important is American security and to make sure we have a border. Without a border a nation cannot exist. The border is complicated, as far as building a physical wall. The Rio Grande, what side of the river are you going to put the wall? We're not going to put it on our side and cede the river to Mexico. And we're probably not going to put it in the middle of the river.feedback

Mar 06 2017 - Oil

Opening more federal lands and waters to oil and gas drilling is a pillar of President Trump's plan to make the United States energy independent.

Mar 03 2017

And also give the buyer a probability that there is a return on investment. I think America on our public lands has the same view.feedback

Mar 02 2017

Humbled by the warm welcome at Interior this morning.feedback

Mar 02 2017

We serve the people, not the other way around. Washington has too much power. I think we need to return it to the front lines.feedback

Mar 02 2017

I was trying to show off some rock climbing skills I had just picked up training with the SEAL teams, but lost my hold and I broke my ankle. I did what any guy would do in my situation: I stood up and kept on hiking, surely messing up my ankle a bit more. Lola and I finished the hike and I didn't collapse in pain, but the bigger accomplishment was I won Lola's heart.feedback
