Manchin Votes to Confirm Deputy EPA Administrator Andrew Wheeler

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) today issued a statement on his vote to confirm the nominee for the next Deputy Administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Andrew Wheeler.

“Every West Virginian wants clean air and clean water and I intend to be vigilant in working with the Environmental Protection Agency to ensure that our fundamental environmental protections are implemented in a sound, fair and effective way. I believe that the economy and the environment can and must be balanced. After meeting with Andrew Wheeler, I believe that he will work with states like West Virginia, not against us.”
