U.S. Senator Mike Enzi, R-Wyo., said there is no better choice than Wyoming native Rob Wallace to fill the position of assistant secretary for Fish, Wildlife, and Parks within the Interior Department.
Enzi introduced Wallace at a confirmation hearing today before the Senate Environment and Public Works (EPW) Committee, chaired by U.S. Senator John Barrasso, R-Wyo. Enzi said he has known Wallace for more than two decades and provided a summary of his background.
“Rob’s career and character reflect a man willing to step up and serve his community and country,” Enzi said. “His years of experience at Interior and in the halls of Congress have well-suited him for this new chapter.”
Last month, President Trump announced his intent to nominate Wallace for this key position overseeing the National Park Service and U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. Once approved by the EPW Committee and Energy and Natural Resources Committee, Wallace must be confirmed by the full Senate before he can begin his duty as assistant secretary.
