The Household & Commercial Products Association (HCPA) released the following statement today, attributed to Steve Caldeira, President & CEO, HCPA, after the U.S. Senate voted 66-34 to confirm Michael Regan as the new Administrator of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
“HCPA congratulates Michael Regan for being named Administrator of the EPA and we look forward to working with him on issues that impact consumers, workers, the environment, and the household and commercial products industry.
Over the course of his already-impressive career, Administrator Regan has demonstrated his ability to use sound science as the foundation for decision making – a fact that we value. He also shares our passion for bringing together diverse stakeholders to find common ground solutions to solve big challenges, which he accomplished numerous times as Secretary of the North Carolina Department of Environmental Quality.
Administrator Regan knows the EPA well, having served as an environmental regulator under Presidents Clinton and Bush, so we look forward to welcoming him back to lead the Agency.”
