NACWA Congratulates EPA Administrator Regan on Confirmation, Looks Forward to Working Closely Together
(March 24, 2021) – The U.S. Senate confirmed Michael Regan March 10 as the newest EPA Administrator in a 66-34 vote. NACWA sent a letter congratulating Mr. Regan on his new role and shared with him our key priority issues.
Regan comes to Washington after serving four years as the secretary of the North Carolina Department of Environmental Quality and is expected to advance many of the Biden Administration’s key environmental priorities including combating climate change, regulating PFAS chemicals, and advancing Environmental Justice initiatives.
NACWA has invited Mr. Regan as the keynote speaker for the upcoming Water Week event on April 27. NACWA looks forward to engaging with Mr. Regan in the months ahead and continuing our long-standing collaborative relationship with the Agency on the critical issues facing the clean water community.
