- JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) - U.S. Sen. Lisa Murkowski is voicing opposition to President Barack Obama's nominee to oversee the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and National Park Service. If Rhea Suh's nomination is taken up by the Senate energy committee Thursday, Murkowski says she'll vote against it. Suh has been nominated as assistant Interior secretary for fish, wildlife and parks. Murkowski says Suh has not answered her questions adequately, and she says she's not convinced that Suh "is the caliber of nominee who deserves swift passage" through the committee. Murkowski planned to resubmit questions she believed had not been adequately addressed by Suh.
