Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke has named Susan Combs the Interior Department’s acting assistant secretary for fish, wildlife and parks, giving her oversight of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and National Park Service. Combs, a native Texan and former state senator, agriculture commissioner and comptroller, was originally nominated as the Interior’s assistant secretary for policy, management and budget last summer. The Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee reported favorably on Combs, but the nomination has not yet advanced during the congressional session. The Trump administration has not nominated anyone as a permanent assistant secretary for fish, wildlife and parks, nor have there been nominations for director of USFWS or the NPS. See more on Combs’s appointment at The Washington Post.
