U.S. Chamber Letter to the Senate in Support of the Nomination of Andrew Wheeler to be Deputy Secretary of the EPA
Dear Chairman Barrasso and Ranking Member Carper:
The U.S. Chamber of Commerce supports the nomination of Andrew Wheeler to be
Deputy Administrator for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (“EPA”). We look forward
to the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee advancing his nomination to the full
Senate for confirmation.
Mr. Wheeler’s substantial public service experience makes him an excellent choice for
leadership at 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.
