EPA Official's Nomination Creates Doubts for Some

Washington, D.C. -- On Aug. 1, the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee approved the nomination of Donald Schregardus as Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) chief enforcement official. But many democratic senators lately have expressed their opposition to the nomination, noting that Schregardus has voted pro-industry in the past. They fear that his nomination would embrace the Bush administration's push to drop Clean Air Act litigation against several power plant operators.
