Senate Confirms Andrew Wheeler as EPA Administrator

03/07/2019

The Senate voted Thursday February 28th to confirm Andrew Wheeler as the Administrator of the EPA by a 52 to 47 vote largely along party lines. Senator Susan Collins (R-ME) and Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) were the only members of the Senate to vote against their parties.

Wheeler who served as Deputy Administrator took over the EPA following the 2018 resignation of Administration appointee Scott Pruitt.
