CHARLESTON, W.Va. — U.S. Sen. Shelley Moore Capito, R-W.Va., and Interior Secretary David Bernhardt will take part in a tour at the Canaan Valley National Wildlife Refuge on Monday.
Capito and Bernhardt will join other elected officials in touring the construction of the new facility, which the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service will utilize.
Capito joined fellow congressional representatives, Gov. Jim Justice and Huntington leaders last week for a meeting with First Lady Melania Trump; the meeting focused on efforts regarding the opioid epidemic.
Capito joined Labor Secretary Alexander Acosta earlier this month to announce a $4 million grant for apprenticeships. The grant goes toward apprenticeships in technical jobs.
Acosta announced Friday he will leave office on July 19 following questions about his handling of a 2008 sex crimes case involving Jeffrey Epstein.
