This week, Daines interviewed Tracy Stone-Manning, Biden’s choice to lead the Bureau of Land Management on several topics, including the Keystone pipeline.
“The president made his decision on the Keystone pipeline and I’m not and shouldn’t be guessing on it,” Stone-Manning said.
“So you’re still against it, though. You opposed it before and you oppose it now, ”Daines asked.
“Senator, again, I will not question the president,” she said.
“I was asking you questions about yourself, however,” Daines repeated. “You have already opposed it. Are you still against it now? “
“Senator, I have served on the board of directors of an organization as a volunteer and, like many organizations, they do a lot of things. Sometimes board members agree, sometimes not.
When asked about the Rock Creek mine project near the Smith River, Daines also took issue with Stone-Manning over her past comments, saying the mine was “philosophically heinous.”
“Do you still think it’s philosophically odious? Your words, ”Daines said. “Did you tell the people of Sanders County and Lincoln County about this?” “
“Senator, I have had long conversations with people on the ground,” Stone-Manning said. “I have had many conversations. I remember talking about giving textbooks to school children. And we have a job to do as Montanais to create well-paid family jobs that come from development that will take care of our environment. And around the time I said I was concerned about some of the hydrological studies and what that would do for the lakes and the wilderness.
“And, have you changed your mind on this?” ” He asked.
Stone-Manning replied, “I haven’t seen the recent studies. It has been years.
Tracy Stone-Manning is a senior advisor to the Montana-based National Wildlife Federation and former chief of staff to Governor Steve Bullock. She previously served as Senator Tester’s senior assistant.
