Wheeler has a chance to get the EPA back on track, will he take it?
The Environmental Protection Agency is finally free of former Administrator Scott Pruitt, but the damage he did while at the helm of the agency lingers. Under Pruitt’s leadership, the EPA veered wildly off course, betraying its mission to protect public health and the environment every step of the way. With Pruitt gone it’s time to right the ship and get the agency back on track. However, with Andrew Wheeler now leading the agency—and given his professional history—significant change in a positive direction is up in the air.
