Moms Clean Air Force Opposes the Nomination of Andrew Wheeler to Head EPA

Andrew Wheeler, whose nomination as EPA head Moms Clean Air Force opposes

Today, President Trump has nominated Andrew Wheeler to serve as EPA administrator. On behalf of one million members who care about children’s health, Moms Clean Air Force opposes this nomination.

Andrew Wheeler should not lead the EPA. Wheeler’s fingerprints are all over the very worst environmental proposals of the Trump Administration. He has proven, first as Deputy EPA Administrator under Scott Pruitt, and then as Acting Administrator, that he has no interest in protecting people’s health and safety; no interest in putting us on a path to climate safety; and no interest in reining in toxic chemicals or harmful air pollution.

Wheeler was for many years a lobbyist for the coal industry—and it’s clear from his actions that corporate polluters are his first priority. He is intent on putting more pollution into the bodies of our kids.
