U.S. Chamber Letter to Senate EPW committee, supporting the nomination of Andrew Wheeler to be Administrator of the EPA
The U.S. Chamber of Commerce supports the nomination of Andrew Wheeler to be the Administrator of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
Mr. Wheeler’s substantial public service experience makes him an excellent choice to lead the EPA. He began his career at the EPA, where he worked on toxic chemical, pollution prevention and right-to-know issues, and he was awarded the EPA Bronze Medal twice for his accomplishments.
Mr. Wheeler also has shown his ability to work with Congress, having previously served the Committee as majority staff director, minority staff director, and chief counsel. In these roles, he worked on all major environmental and energy-related legislation before Congress for more than a decade.
