2013 Scorecard Vote
After she was nominated by President Barack Obama, the Senate considered the nomination of Sally Jewell to serve as Secretary of the Interior. As the former CEO of the outdoor recreation retail company REI, Jewell has a unique appreciation for public lands and conservation, and knows firsthand how important it is to protect lands that Americans enjoy for recreational activities like hiking, hunting, fishing, and camping. Throughout her career, Jewell has displayed the ability to skillfully manage a large and successful organization while also working to strengthen Americans’ connection to the outdoors. During her confirmation hearing, she further laid out her vision for a balanced and responsible approach to managing our public lands. On April 10, the Senate approved Jewell’s nomination by a vote of 87-11 (Senate roll call vote 94). YES IS THE PRO-ENVIRONMENT VOTE.
