The U.S. Senate voted today to confirm Joe Goffman as Assistant Administrator of the EPA’s Office of Air and Radiation. The BlueGreen Alliance supported Goffman’s nomination in a June 2022 letter to the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works leadership.
In response to Goffman’s confirmation, the BlueGreen Alliance released the following statement from Executive Director Jason Walsh:
“Joe Goffman has dedicated his career to the protection of human health and the environment. He has the experience needed to do this critical work in ways that lift up communities and workers and prioritize investment where it is needed most, including frontline communities. We have no doubt that his extensive expertise will mean greater protection for the millions across our nation who are harmed by climate and air pollution. We’d like to offer our sincere congratulations to Mr. Goffman and look forward to working with him to protect the health of families and communities in the United States and create a stronger and cleaner economy.”
