“I’m thrilled that the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee voted today in favor of Gina McCarthy as our next EPA Administrator. In the end, the committee approved a highly-qualified candidate for one of our country’s most important jobs.
“Ms. McCarthy is an experienced leader who has a well-deserved reputation for being pragmatic and fair. She has worked with both parties, and has garnered the support of both environmental advocates and industry leaders. I think she’ll do an outstanding job as head of EPA, and I look forward to her quick confirmation by the full Senate."
-- Fred Krupp, President of Environmental Defense Fund
