LCV Statement on the Confirmation of William Wehrum

Nov 9, 2017

In response to the Senate’s confirmation of William Wehrum as head of the EPA’s Office of Air and Radiation, Sara Chieffo, Vice President of Government Affairs for the League of Conservation Voters released the following statement;

“Today is a bad day for all of us who care about clean air. Families across the country deserve better than William Wehrum for our nation’s top air official. Mr. Wehrum has spent his career, both in private practice and during his previous tenure at the EPA’s Office of Air and Radiation, fighting to weaken safeguards that protect our air, putting polluters’ interests ahead of the health of communities.”
