The Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources voted just minutes ago to advance the nomination of David Bernhardt to be the next Secretary of the Interior.

Please add your name to our petition asking the Senate to reject former lobbyist David Bernhardt’s nomination as Secretary of the Department of Interior.

 

Lobbyist 1

David Bernhardt worked for years to undermine the Endangered Species Act (ESA) in his role as a lobbyist and is the chief architect of the Trump Administration’s radical revision of its responsibilities under the Act that will put dozens of species in greater peril. He has a long and deeply troubling history of prioritizing his clients over conservation and has used his current office of Deputy Secretary of the Interior to continue his mission of weakening wildlife protections. He has yet to be confirmed but is already the subject of at least 17 scandals1.

David Bernhardt is a disastrous nomination for this office. The Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources should have stopped him when they had the chance. Now, it is up to the rest of the Senate.

Please sign our community petition to the Senate asking that they reject this horrendous nomination.

Thank you,
