Tester Urges Senate Environment and Public Works Committee to Approve Martha Williams to Lead Fish and Wildlife Services

In a letter to Senate Environment and Public Works Committee leadership, U.S. Senator Jon Tester today urged the committee to approve Montana’s Martha Williams’ nomination to be the Director of the Fish and Wildlife Service following today’s hearing.

“Martha Williams has spent her entire career standing up for Montana’s public lands and has proven herself to be a thoughtful, nonpartisan steward who works collaboratively with folks on the ground to make positive change,” said Tester. “She has demonstrated the ability to find common ground between sportsmen and conservationists alike, and as an exceptional problem solver, I know she will be an outstanding Director of the Fish and Wildlife Service. I am looking forward to her confirmation and working with her to protect wildlife and Montana jobs for generations to come.”

Williams currently serves as the Principal Deputy Director at Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS), and she served as Director of Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks from 2017-2021. Previously Williams served as a professor at the Alexander Blewitt III School of Law at the University of Montana, where she also earned her JD.
