President-elect Donald Trump is expected to pick Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers as Interior secretary, a senior Trump transition official confirmed to CNBC on Friday.
Rep. McMorris Rodgers from Washington is the highest-ranking Republican woman in the a U.S. House of Representatives. She serves as chair of the House Republican Conference, the fourth highest-ranking position in the House. Earlier this month, she was appointed to serve as a vice chair of Trump's transition team.
She was first elected to the House in 2004, and has since focused on issues of hydropower. She currently serves on the Energy and Commerce Committee. The other candidate reportedly under consideration for the position was Oklahoma Governor Mary Fallin.
In 2014, Rep. McMorris Rodgers was the subject of investigation by the Office of Congressional Ethics. It concluded that her congressional staff performed certain campaign activities — such as preparing her for campaign debates, drafting campaign speeches and traveling to her district for campaign events — using official resources. Her attorney at the time denied the OCE's findings, saying it was "was unable to conduct a full review" in the 90 days allowed.
