Deputy EPA Administrator McCabe Confirmation Will Bring Experience, Empathy to Environmental Oversight

WASHINGTON, D.C. —The bipartisan confirmation of Janet McCabe, the Biden Administration’s nominee for deputy Environmental Protection Agency administrator, is a victory for the agency and for a renewal of environmental protection for all. McCabe brings both experience leading the EPA’s work to protect clean air for all and a critical understanding of how the agency’s work affects people.

“Janet McCabe understands that the EPA’s critical mission of safeguarding our clean air, clean water and communities is more important now than ever,” said Mustafa Santiago Ali, vice president of environmental justice, climate, and community revitalization at the National Wildlife Federation. “I know from working with her that she cares about vulnerable communities and is a fair and experienced regulator. We look forward to continuing to work with her and the Biden Administration to make sure all people and wildlife are safeguarded from the impacts of pollution and the climate crisis.”
