January 21, 2009
Press Release
Rep. Grace F. Napolitano (CA-38) issued the following statement on Secretary Ken Salazar’s confirmation by a voice vote in the Senate:
“My most heartfelt congratulations to Secretary Ken Salazar on his confirmation and gratitude to the Senate for recognizing such a valuable Senator and moving swiftly to fill this critical position. One of America’s most pressing issues, especially in Western states, is securing our long term water supply. Without water, there can be no economic growth. Secretary Salazar’s experience as a Senator from Colorado has given him an intimate understanding of the value of this resource and of other challenges and the opportunities we face. As Chairwoman of the House Water & Power Subcommittee, I know I can work with him to support critical investments in our water infrastructure to create jobs and protect our long-term prosperity.”
