A U.S. Senator from Missouri tells Brownfield he’s not ready
to say he’ll vote to confirm acting administrator Andrew Wheeler as head of the
EPA. Josh Hawley tells Brownfield he wants to meet with Wheeler one-on-one and
ask him about the RFS waivers EPA has granted to big oil companies, “I’d like
to get his view on exactly where EPA’s going to be on this and help him understand
that what the EPA’s done in the past two years is extremely unhelpful, is the
best way you can say it, if not inconsistent with the statute.”
Hawley says Congress also needs to get commitments for a final resolution of the Waters of the U.S.
