Together with dozens of organizations, OMA signed a letter to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer urging the Senate to fill vacancies in U.S. EPA leadership.
The groups wrote: “… more than nine months into the new Administration, the EPA lacks Senate-confirmed Deputy and Assistant Administrators to carry out this mission. The EPA’s activities have a significant impact on each of our industries, the products we make or the services we provide, and the tens of millions of workers we represent. It is therefore of significant importance to our groups that EPA is appropriately and fully staffed. This holds especially true for individuals in key leadership positions.”
Here is the letter; it contains the slate of nominees the groups ask the Senate to confirm. 11/9/2017
