White House Announces Department of the Interior Solicitor Nominee

On Monday, July 31st, the White House announced the President’s intent to nominate Idaho attorney Ryan Nelson to serve as the Solicitor of the Department of the Interior (DOI or Department). The DOI Solicitor plays a significant role in determining the Department’s legal positions on litigation and federal laws that impact the federal government’s treaty and trust obligations to Indian Country. The nomination will be referred to the Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources, which will likely schedule a hearing on the nomination in September.
