Senate Confirms U.S. EPA's Second-In-Command Position

April 19, 2018

On April 12, the U.S. Senate confirmed attorney Andrew Wheeler, former lobbyist and congressional aide, to serve as the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s deputy administrator.  AGC had urged the Senate to confirm Mr. Wheeler’s nomination. If EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt were to leave the agency, Wheeler would be next in line to become acting administrator.

As AGC’s letter states, Mr. Wheeler is an experienced and well-qualified leader on environmental and construction matters, having served in both Congress and the Executive Branch on such issues. He understands that collaborative work between industry and government will further advance and balance environmental stewardship with economic development. 

AGC looks forward to working with Mr. Wheeler on the important issue of environmental stewardship in the construction industry and continuing our positive working relationship with EPA.
