NOIA Applauds Wheeler’s Confirmation
NOIA President Randall Luthi released the following statement after the Senate voted to confirm Andrew Wheeler as the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator:
“NOIA congratulates Andrew Wheeler and applauds the Senate following his confirmation as EPA Administrator. Mr. Wheeler has shown his ability to successfully navigate through tough issues, tough interest groups and a tough confirmation process with his knowledge, demeanor and a well-conceived plan for the future of the agency. EPA and the environment will benefit from his consistent, thoughtful leadership.
“It is vital for a president to have a full team of confirmed nominees, and NOIA calls upon the President and the Senate to move forward nominees for other Departments, particularly the Department of the Interior, who are key to developing policies to enhance energy production, improve the environment and grow our economy.”
