Linda Reinstein, President at Asbestos Disease Awareness Organization, made this statement:

“Wheeler’s actions as Acting Administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) have not demonstrated the quality of leadership needed to assume the responsibility of the Agency’s Administrator. As a former coal lobbyist, we are deeply concerned that Wheeler will not put public health and our environment above corporate polluters. Americans deserve a champion who will implement and enforce the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) reform, and an EPA Administrator who is accountable to the public, not industry. ”
