Democratic Senators to block Bush's nominee for Chief Enforcement Officer of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)

August 22, 2001


Charles Kernaghan

Executive Director of the National Labor Committee.

Barbara Boxer, Chuck Schumer, and other Democractic Senators block Donald Schregardus, due to the Federal investigation of the Ohio EPA which he headed, for non-enforcement of the Clean Water Act. Schumer also wants to know Schregardus’ plans for acid rain enforcement in general. We speak with John Coequyt, Senior Analyst of the Environmental Working Group, and Marilyn Wall, board member of the Ohio Citizen Action, and Conservation Chair for the Sierra Club.
