Working It: Susan Combs Nominated for Interior Position

Former State Representative, Commissioner of Agriculture, and State Comptroller - Susan Combs has been nominated by the Trump Administration to serve as assistant secretary for policy management and budget at the Department of the Interior.

The nomination was announced earlier this week and the appointment is subject to U.S. Senate confirmation. Both Texas Senators have released statements praising Combs' nomination. 

“I am deeply honored to be asked to serve in the Trump Administration and to work with Secretary Zinke. The Department of the Interior is an extraordinarily important federal department and I look forward to getting to work,” Combs said in a press release regarding her nomination.

Combs left the Comptroller's office in 2014 - choosing not to run in that year's election, she's also written a book that I've just added to my Kindle for an easy .99.
