NCBA Opposing EPA Nominee Gina McCarthy

NCBA Opposing EPA Nominee Gina McCarthy

A battle is brewing over the nomination of Gina McCarthy to head the Environmental Protection Agency.  Missouri Senator Roy Blount along with the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association are opposing the nomination. NCBA Vice President of Government Affairs Colin Woodall says EPA’s usual business of regulatory overreach will continue if McCarthy becomes administrator.

Woodall says besides EPA’s release of producer’s private information to environmental groups, the move to asking for a rule making process on the clean water act are among actions McCarthy supports which NCBA opposes.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has vowed to move the nomination process along not only for McCarthy but for other Obama appointees.
