"EPA: Wheeler Kept Up Industry Meetings After Taking Reins"

"Andrew Wheeler met with a range of companies and trade groups with interests before EPA after he took charge at the agency.

Wheeler's official August calendar, an 85-page document obtained under the Freedom of Information Act, describes what he was doing during his first full month as acting EPA administrator. It is the first official Wheeler calendar E&E News has received that covers his tenure as acting boss.

Wheeler was scheduled to call or meet with executives for the American Fuel and Petrochemical Manufacturers, BP America, Delta Air Lines and Valero Energy Corp. during that month, according to the document. In addition, he was slated to take meetings with agricultural interests, like the American Soybean Association and CropLife America."
