WASHINGTON, DC – The League of Conservation Voters (LCV) President Gene Karpinski released this statement following the vote by the Senate to confirm President Obama’s nomination of Gina McCarthy to lead the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA):
“Gina McCarthy is the right person at the right time to lead the EPA. President Obama had laid out an ambitious, common sense climate change agenda, and her leadership at the EPA will help make that plan a reality. Gina McCarthy has spent her entire career working with both parties, and it showed in this bipartisan confirmation vote. We congratulate Gina McCarthy on her confirmation, and know she’ll do an outstanding job leading the agency at such a critical time."
