Today, Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar will hold a press call to wrap-up his two-day trip to North Dakota and to announce new initiatives that will help expedite safe and responsible development of domestic energy resources on U.S. public lands in the Dakotas, Montana and states across the country. Salazar will be joined by Bureau of Land Management Director Bob Abbey.

Salazar’s visit to North Dakota came as part of a three-state swing to promote energy and tourism as economic engines. On Monday, Salazar was in Dickinson where he toured oil and gas development operations on federal mineral estate and met with federal employees. Earlier today, he was at the Fort Berthold Reservation where he met with the Three Affiliated Tribes to discuss the economic benefits of domestic energy production for American Indian communities.
