Senate EPW Committee Expected To Take Up EPA Nominee

Senate Environment and Public Works Committee (EPW) Chair Barbara Boxer (D-CA) has stated that she expects the Committee to consider and vote on President Obama's pick for U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator, Gina McCarthy, in the coming weeks. The nomination is expected to pass the Committee and the full Senate despite recent public statements by Committee Ranking Member Jim Inhofe (R-OK) that he will not support McCarthy. McCarthy has served as EPA's Assistant Administrator for Air and Radiation since 2009. In this position, McCarthy has helped oversee among other things implementation of the federal Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS). She is seen as a supporter of renewable energy, including renewable fuels.
