EPA Nominee McCarthy Faces Senate Grilling

"COMING THURSDAY: Probably the most rough-and-tumble of the nomination hearings for members of President Obama’s second-term green team.

Gina McCarthy, Obama’s choice to run the Environmental Protection Agency, will appear before the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee.

The Senate committee includes three of Capitol Hill’s most outspoken critics of the EPA: the panel’s ranking Republican, Sen. David Vitter (La.), and Sens. James Inhofe (R-Okla.) and John Barrasso (R-Wyo.)."

Zack Colman and Ben Geman report for The Hill's E2 Wire April 10, 2013.

The Senate EPW hearing will begin at 10:30 am ET. It will be livestreamed by the committee here and also broadcast on C-SPAN.
