Washington, D.C. — In response to President-elect Biden nominating Janet McCabe to be the deputy administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency, the League of Conservation Voters (LCV) issued the following statement from Legislative Director and former EPA health scientist Matthew Davis:

“Janet McCabe is a fantastic choice to help lead the EPA. McCabe has deep experience with the climate and clean air standards that will be key to the Biden administration’s success on climate and environmental justice. And McCabe’s leadership will provide a needed  morale boost at the EPA after four years of undermining science and health outcomes under the Trump administration.”
