FOE applauds confirmation of Michael Regan as Environmental Protection Agency administrator
WASHINGTON– The U.S. Senate voted to confirm Michael Regan as Administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency today. He will be sworn-in in the coming days.
Donna Chavis, senior fossil fuel campaigner for Friends of the Earth and an elder of the Lumbee Nation issued the following response:
We look forward to working with the EPA and the Biden Administration on policies that support a healthy and just world. Regan and the EPA have a new opportunity to place environmental justice at the center of the agency and the United States’ approach to the climate crisis. We call upon Michael Regan to take bold and visionary steps to rebuild the EPA and address the very real climate crisis we face in the U.S and globally. It is time we all do better.
