"Ex-EPA Officials Urge Wheeler To Change Direction Of Agency"

"A group of former officials with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) are urging acting Administrator Andrew Wheeler to turn the agency around following a number of decisions they are calling reckless.

Four former EPA air office heads, as well as former Obama-era Administrator Gina McCarthy, sent a letter to Wheeler and Office of Air Administrator Bill Wherum on Wednesday asking them to reset the direction of the EPA.

"As your time as Acting Administrator begins, you have the opportunity to clearly set the direction of the agency and return to its core statutory mission of protecting public health," Roger Strelow, David Hawkins, Bob Perciasepe, McCarthy and Janet McCabe wrote."
