Washington D.C. — Following the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee hearing on the nomination of Michael Regan to serve as EPA Administrator, the League of Conservation Voters (LCV) issued the following statement from Senior Vice President of Government Affairs Tiernan Sittenfeld: 

“Regan proved he is just the right person to lead the EPA in addressing the climate, racial justice, economic and public health crises, and he made clear he will always be guided by science and the law. 

“Regan has received bipartisan praise for his record of building coalitions and fighting for environmental justice for North Carolina communities exposed to toxic pollution — including runoff from hog farms and toxic PFAS chemicals in drinking water. Any Senator who votes against Regan’s confirmation would be putting fossil fuel CEOs before clean air, clean water, and healthy communities.”
