  • Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee ranking member John Barrasso, R-Wyo., grilled Interior Secretary Deb Haaland over tree-spiking and President Biden’s nominee to lead the Bureau of Land Management (BLM).
  • The Wyoming senator – who is leading the charge against Biden’s BLM nominee Tracy Stone-Manning – asked Biden’s secretary about the legality of spiking trees and if the act can “kill or maim loggers and mill workers.”
  • Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, also unloaded onto Haaland over the nomination, bringing up Stone-Manning’s support of her husband’s call to let houses caught in forest fires burn.
