WASHINGTON, D.C — House Natural Resources Committee Member Russ Fulcher has announced his appointment to serve as Ranking Member of the National Parks, Forests, and Public Lands Subcommittee. In addition, he will serve as a member of the Water, Oceans, and Wildlife Subcommittee.

“It is an honor to serve as Ranking Member of the National Parks, Forests, and Public Lands Subcommittee, particularly with the strong impact of this committee on my home state of Idaho.
