Reid Statement on Nomination of Bob Abbey as BLM Director

June 9, 2009

Washington, D.C.— Nevada Senator Harry Reid released the following statement after President Obama nominated Bob Abbey as the Director of the Bureau of Land Management at the personal recommendation of Sen. Reid to Interior Secretary Ken Salazar:

“I can’t think of a more qualified person to head the BLM than Bob Abbey. With his extensive experience in Nevada, a state where nearly 90 percent of the land is federally managed, our state will have a friend at the BLM who understands the challenges we face in managing and preserving Nevada’s great outdoors and its immense renewable energy resources. I congratulate Bob and look forward to working with him in his new position.”
