U.S. SENATE —U.S. Senator Steve Daines today was renamed top Republican of the U.S. Senate Energy and Natural Resources Subcommittee on National Parks.
“Our national parks are what help set us apart from the rest of the world—they’re also part of our Montana way of life,” Daines stated. “I look forward to being Montana’s voice on important energy, natural resources, public lands and forest management issues in the Senate. I also look forward to serving as the top Republican on the National Parks Subcommittee to bolster our parks and public lands so Montanans and all Americans can enjoy our great outdoors for generations to come.”
Senator Daines will also serve on the Subcommittee on Public Lands, Forests, and Mining.
Daines served as the chairman of the Subcommittee on National Parks in the 115th and in 116th Congress where he was instrumental in passing the “Great American Outdoors Act” which provides funding for critical maintenance projects and infrastructure within National Parks.
