“[I] look forward to working with Congressman [Bruce] Westerman (R-AR)…“We have forest issues. We have endangered species, water rights, land rights. I mean, just all of that really is encompassed in the district,” —Congresswoman Yvette Herrell (R-NM), new Republican member of the House Natural Resources Committee.

Get to know Congresswoman Yvette Herrell—a freshman lawmaker from the Land of Enchantment.  She is the first Republican Native American elected to the House and the first Cherokee woman ever to serve the chamber. In November, Herrell won her seat by 7.4%— flipping the seat back to red. She joined Gabriella today to discuss critical issues facing her district, what she hopes to accomplish on the House Natural Resources Committee, public lands, ranching, President Biden’s executive orders and more.
