This morning at about 9:30AM, the Senate Committee on Environment and
Public Works met to consider the nomination of Jamie Clark as Director
of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
Senator Chafee opened the session with a strong statement of support
which was seconded by Senator Baucus who said, "I think she's great!"
The nomination was seconded by a chorus of Senators and the vote was
unanimous with 12 Senators voting in favor and none opposed. Those
who cast a vote were: Allard (R-CO); Baucus (D-MT); Inhofe (R-OK);
Hutchinson (R-AK); Ried (D-NV); Smith (R-NH); Thomas (R-WY); Wyden
(D-OR); Bond (R-MO); Graham (D-FL); Chafee (R-RI); and Sessions
The Committee has reported the nomination and it is clear to proceed to
the Senate floor for consideration by the full Senate. Senator Chafee
has expressed his desire to have the nomination considered by the
Senate prior to the August recess. Currently, we know of no obstacles,
except the short period of time remaining before the Senate is
scheduled to adjourn for the recess (August 1).
