This week we conclude our series of interviews from the meeting of the American Conservation Coalition, a right-of-center environmental organization and talk to someone you may have never heard of but should – Rep. Bruce Westerman of Arkansas.

Westerman used to be the Majority Leader of the Arkansas House and moved up to Washington by winning Tom Cotton’s old district when he was elected to the Senate. A graduate of both Arkansas and Yale, he was an engineer and forester by for Mid-South Engineering Company and served as president of the Arkansas chapter of the American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineering.

In the House he is the ranking member of the Natural Resources Committee and leads the GOP Caucus on environmental issues.
