Daines Announces Support for Nomination of Martha Williams to Head U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service

Williams is from Montana

U.S. SENATE — U.S. Senator Steve Daines today announced his support for the nomination of Martha Williams to lead the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. Daines urged his colleagues on the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works to swiftly advance her nomination.

“Wildlife conservation is integral to Montanans’ way of life and outdoor economy. Having spent the majority of her career at the Montana Department of Fish, Wildlife and Parks and as a fellow Montana sportsman, Ms. Martha Williams knows that first hand. I believe Montana and the country would be well-served with her at the helm of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and write to you in support of advancing her nomination quickly,” Daines wrote.  

“I’m hopeful that under her leadership, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service will continue to rely on data and science to ensure Montana can continue managing these species and resume primary management responsibility of the grizzly bear,” Daines continued.
