Congressman Young’s Statement on Secretary Zinke’s Departure

Alaska Congressman Don Young issued the following statement after Department of Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke announced his departure from the Department:

“Secretary Zinke has been a great friend to Alaska. I had the pleasure of serving with him on the House Natural Resources Committee and fully supported his mission since he took over at Interior,” said Congressman Young. “From finally allowing the community of King Cove to build a life-saving road, to overseeing the work to begin opening the 1002 Area of ANWR for development, his time as Interior Secretary has been critical to Alaska. Secretary Zinke’s leadership and service has allowed Alaska to shine as an example of how to responsibly develop and manage natural resources. I want to, once again, thank Secretary Zinke for his work and passion as head of the Department of the Interior and I wish him all the best going forward.”
