Murkowski meets with Interior nominee Jewell

JUNEAU, Alaska -- U.S. Sen. Lisa Murkowski says she had a good meeting with President Barack Obama's nominee for Interior secretary a week after she threatened to slow the nomination process.
Murkowski has threatened to hold up Sally Jewell's nomination unless the Obama administration agrees to a land exchange that will lead to construction of a road for King Cove for access to an all-weather airport.
Murkowski says she spent more than an hour Wednesday with Jewell. She says they didn't speak much about King Cove, and Murkowski hopes current Interior Secretary Ken Salazar will allow the land exchange before he leaves office.
Murkowski stressed she would have a chance to drill down further when Jewell comes before the Energy and Natural Resources committee next week..
Salazar will meet with King Cove residents Thursday.
