Sources tell the Denver Post that the White House is expected to announce today that longtime Colorado public servant Harris Sherman, director of the state’s Department of Natural Resources, will be nominated to run the U.S. Forest Service.

Sherman would be nominated for the position of Undersecretary for Natural Resources and Environment within the U.S. Department of Agriculture. That job requires Senate confirmation. Sherman would oversee both the Forest Service and the Natural Resources Conservation Service.

As director of the Colorado Department of Natural Resources, Sherman is currently a member of Gov. Bill Ritter’s cabinet. He also held that position under Gov. Richard Lamm.

He oversees state energy, water, wildlife, parks, and state lands programs. He also serves as director of compact negotiations for the Colorado Interbasin Compact Commission and chairs the Colorado Oil and Gas Conservation Commission.
