Wednesday, January 09, 2019

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Debbie Stabenow (D-MI) released a statement on the nomination of Andrew Wheeler to be the next Administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency:


“The next head of the EPA must stand with us to protect our Great Lakes and make decisions based on sound science. I voted against Andrew Wheeler to be Deputy EPA Administrator because I had no confidence he would do that. I am deeply concerned that he will continue Scott Pruitt’s legacy of undermining protections for our air and water if confirmed as EPA Administrator.”
