Statement from Diane Regas, president and CEO of The Trust for Public Land, on the Senate Confirmation of Deb Haaland as Secretary of the Interior:

“I’m proud to see the Senate has confirmed Rep. Deb Haaland as the next Secretary of the Interior. Rep. Haaland has been a champion of parks and outdoor equity, pushing for the passage of the Great American Outdoors Act and leading the effort for investment in community parks that led to the introduction of the Parks, Jobs, and Equity Act. Her historic conformation is a victory for all Americans and we look forward to seeing her bring justice and equity to the department.”
