Murkowski Votes to Confirm Rex Tillerson as Secretary of State

U.S. Senator Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) released the following statement after voting to confirm Mr. Rex Tillerson as Secretary of State:

“I believe that Rex Tillerson is a strong choice to be Secretary of State, given his vast experience around the globe and his background as a highly disciplined executive. He has proven himself an effective leader of a global organization and I believe he possesses the character and strength to speak truth to President Trump. I look forward to working with him on enhancing the influence of the U.S. as an Arctic nation and Alaska-specific issues such as transboundary mining along Southeast Alaska’s border with Canada.”
