In response to the resignation of Bill Wehrum, EPA Assistant Administrator, Office of Air and Radiation, whose confirmation we opposed, the League of Conservation Voters issued the following statement from Tiernan Sittenfeld, SVP of Government Affairs:

“Good riddance to yet another Trump official who has padded polluter profits instead of protecting kids’ health. At a time when the number of unhealthy air days has jumped 15%, Wehrum worked to weaken clean air protections further. Mitch McConnell and his allies must stop rubberstamping the industry cronies like Bill Wehrum, Scott Pruitt and Ryan Zinke who keep having to resign amid ethical transgressions.”
