In keeping with the President's March 13, 2017, executive order. The Secretary of the Interior proposes to improve the efficiency, effectiveness, and accountability of the Department of the Interior by reorganizing certain agency functions and bureaus.
"I fully support President Trump and taxpayers' vision to reorganize the federal government in a way that will make the executive branch more lean, accountable, and efficient while still allowing the government to deliver core services. I approach this job like I approached every command I was tasked with in the Navy: empower the front lines, cut the waste, fraud and abuse, hold people accountable, and do more with less. I won't be afraid to make investments where appropriate and I look forward to working with the career veterans as we approach this mission together."
