    Interior Secretary Deb Haaland is recovering after breaking her leg Sunday during a hike in Virginia’s Shenandoah National Park, the Interior Department says. Doctors confirmed Monday that Haaland broke her left fibula in the accident, Interior said in a statement. Haaland is grateful to park staff, the U.S. Park Police, and the team at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center for their excellent care, the statement said. Haaland is expected to return to work virtually later Monday, an agency spokeswoman said. Haaland, 61, has served as Interior secretary since March 2021 and is the first Native American to serve as a Cabinet secretary.

    CHACO CULTURE NATIONAL HISTORICAL PARK, N.M. (AP) — A few big rigs carried oilfield equipment on a winding road near Chaco Culture National Historical Park, cutting through desert badlands and sage. Mobile homes and traditional Navajo dwellings dotted the landscape, with a smattering of natural gas wells visible in the distance. This swath of northwestern New Mexico has been at the center of a decades-long battle over oil and gas development. U.S. Interior Secretary Deb Haaland joined pueblo leaders Monday to reflect on her office’s announcement last week that it would seek to withdraw federal land holdings within 10 miles (16 kilometers) of the park’s boundary, making the area off-limits to oil and gas leasing for 20 years. “This celebration is decades in the making,” Haaland said. “Some would even say millennia in the making.” Haaland’s action halts new leases in the area for the next two years while federal officials consider the proposed withdrawal. While the Chaco area holds historical and cultural significance to many tribes, the Navajo Nation oversees much of the land that makes up the...
    WASHINGTON (AP) — Interior Secretary Deb Haaland on Friday revoked a series of Trump administration orders that promoted fossil fuel development on public lands and waters, and issued a separate directive that prioritizes climate change in agency decisions. The moves are part of a government-wide effort by the Biden administration to address climate change ahead of a virtual global summit on climate change that President Joe Biden is hosting next week. “From day one, President Biden was clear that we must take a whole-of-government approach to tackle the climate crisis, strengthen the economy and address environmental justice,” Haaland said in a statement. The new orders will “make our communities more resilient to climate change and … help lead the transition to a clean energy economy,” she added. The orders revoke Trump-era directives that boosted coal, oil and gas leasing on federal lands and promoted what Trump called “energy dominance” in the United States. Haaland also rescinded a Trump administration order intended to increase oil drilling in Alaska’s National Petroleum Reserve. Haaland called the orders by her predecessors, Ryan Zinke and...
    The Senate on Monday confirmed ​Rep. Deb Haaland as interior secretary, making the New Mexico congresswoman the first Native American to lead a Cabinet department. She was confirmed by a 51-40 vote. Haaland’s confirmation was hailed by Democrats and tribal groups. As interior secretary, she will lead a powerful department that routinely deals with the 600 federally recognized tribes. “Rep. Haaland’s confirmation represents a gigantic step forward in creating a government that represents the full richness and diversity of this country,” said Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer said. “Native Americans for far too long have been neglected at the Cabinet level and in so many other places,” said Schumer. On the other side of the aisle, Haaland has been criticized by several Republicans during her confirmation process for her embrace of the progressive Green New Deal and her anti-fracking stance. Wyoming Sen. John Barrasso, the top Republican on the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee, said Haaland’s “extreme views” and support of “catastrophic legislation” such as the Green New Deal would make her confirmation as interior secretary disastrous, harming...

    By MICHAEL KOHN, The Bulletin BEND, Ore. (AP) — Since the historic appointment of Deb Haaland to head the U.S. Department of the Interior, hopes have been high among members of the Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs that better times are ahead. Next month the congresswoman from New Mexico will become the first Native American appointed to the position of cabinet secretary when she takes over at the Department of the Interior, which also oversees the Bureau of Indian Affairs. Haaland is a member of the Laguna Pueblo, a tribe located near Albuquerque. Warm Springs tribal members see the appointment as a beacon of light following a tough year of wildfire, high rates of COVID-19 and infrastructure failures that left parts of the reservation without potable water, The Bulletin reported. “Considering our large number of COVID-19 cases, everyone seems happy and excited for the potential of what Deb Haaland could do,” said Dustin Seyler, a Warm Springs tribal member. The tribes have been hit hard by COVID. As of Monday, the tribes had 664 total positive cases since the start...
    By ELLEN KNICKMEYER and GARY D. ROBERTSON, Associated Press President-elect Joe Biden says he had chosen North Carolina regulator Michael S. Regan as his nominee to lead the Environmental Protection Agency and New Mexico Rep. Deb Haaland as his pick for interior secretary. Biden said Thursday that the selections round out what he said would be an experienced climate team ready from their first day in office to tackle the “undeniable, accelerating, punishing reality of climate change.” Biden is proposing a sweeping overhaul of the nation’s transportation and electrical systems to cut the oil, gas and coal emissions behind worsening global warming. The picks also help Biden fulfill his promise to put together a Cabinet that reflects the diversity of America. Regan is Black, while Haaland would be the first Native American Cabinet member in U.S. history. Biden will introduce Regan, Haaland and other newly named nominees at an event Saturday. Regan became environmental chief in North Carolina in 2017 and made a name for himself by pursuing cleanups of industrial toxins and helping the low-income and minority communities hit...

    President-elect Joe Biden plans to nominate New Mexico Congresswoman Deb Haaland to be secretary of the interior. She would be the first Native American to lead the agency.  Haaland, 60, is a member of the Laguna Pueblo. The Interior Department has a large influence over the country’s nearly 600 federally recognized tribes, in addition to overseeing federal lands, including wildlife, national parks and mineral wealth.  Native American groups were pleased. Navajo Nation President Jonathan Nez said he was overjoyed, according to The Associated Press.  “It is truly a historic and unprecedented day for all Indigenous people,” he said.  Environmental groups also praised the choice.  “Representative Haaland’s historic appointment means a new era of protection for our wildlife, public lands and waters from the rapacious extractive industries that have ruled the day under the Trump administration,” said Kierán Suckling, executive director of the Center for Biological Diversity. “It’s critical for Native American leaders to be part of all decision-making about public lands, and Haaland’s appointment will ensure that.”   FILE - Rep.
