1. INTERIOR:

Obama's secretary pick has conservation, oil industry chops

President Obama this afternoon is scheduled to announce that REI chief Sally Jewell will be nominated to become the 51st secretary of the Interior, an unconventional pick that has garnered early praise from conservation groups and some oil industry backers. Jewell, who has led the outdoor retailer since 2005, was considered a dark horse candidate to replace outgoing Interior Secretary Ken Salazar, who plans to depart by the end of next month.

2. INTERIOR:

Jewell a steady donor to politicians and PACs

President Obama's anticipated nominee for secretary of the Interior, Recreational Equipment Inc. Chief Executive Sally Jewell, is a political novice, but she has experience where it often counts in Washington, D.C.: opening her wallet with more than $42,000 in campaign donations.
