Senate energy committee tied in vote on Biden pick to lead BLM

(Reuters) – The U.S. Senate Energy Committee on Thursday voted 10-10 along party lines on the nomination of Montana conservationist Tracy Stone-Manning to lead the Bureau of Land Management.

Because of the tie vote, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer will have to take procedural steps to bring the nomination to the full Senate for debate and a vote, according to Energy and Natural Resources Chairman Joe Manchin.
