TO THE MEMBERS OF THE COMMITTEE ON ENVIRONMENT AND PUBLIC WORKS:
The U.S. Chamber of Commerce applauds the Committee for holding last week’s hearing to consider the nomination of Michael Regan to be Administrator of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). We support his nomination and urge his swift confirmation.
Mr. Regan has extensive experience working on complex environmental challenges, most recently serving as Secretary of the North Carolina Department of Environmental Quality and earlier as an air quality and energy policy expert with both the private sector and the EPA. He is well qualified to lead an organization as large and complex as the EPA, and his record as a thoughtful leader and consensus builder will serve him well in this role.
