Environment & Climate Change Subcommittee Announces Budget Hearing with EPA Administrator Andrew Wheeler
Energy and Commerce Chairman Frank Pallone, Jr. (D-NJ) and Environment and Climate Change Subcommittee Chairman Paul Tonko (D-NY) announced today that the Environment and Climate Change Subcommittee will hold a hearing on Tuesday, April 9, at 10 am in the John D. Dingell Room, 2123 Rayburn House Office Building with Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator Andrew Wheeler on President Trump’s EPA budget request for fiscal year 2020. The hearing is entitled, “The Fiscal Year 2020 EPA Budget.”
“Budgets are an expression of priorities, and the Trump EPA’s 2020 budget shows just how little this Administration cares about public health and environmental protection,” said Pallone and Tonko. “We will hold Administrator Wheeler accountable for his agency’s failure to protect Americans’ health and demand answers for their complete lack of transparency. The American people deserve to hear why this Administration is not taking the health and safety of their families and communities seriously.”
