Concerns About Trump's Pick for Interior Department

Feb 8, 2019

The revolving door in Washington shows no signs of slowing down. President Trump nominated former Rifle, Colorado resident David Bernhardt, a longtime energy lobbyist, to head the US Department of the Interior, replacing Ryan Zinke. Center for Western Priorities policy director Jesse Prentice-Dunn speaks to KDNK about Bernhardt's conflicts of interest and a recent public opinion survey on energy and conservation. During Trump's shutdown, the Interior Department approved drilling permits for companies with links to Bernhardt. 

U.S. Interior Secretary nominee David Bernhardt is a Rifle, Colorado native and former oil and gas lobbyist.
