Bush Chooses New EPA Leader

Aug. 12, 2003

Yesterday, President George Bush chose a new leader for the Environmental Protection Agency.

A senior Bush Administration official said Utah Governor Mike Leavitt has been nominated. Leavitt supports shifting regulations to the states.

"Mike Leavitt will come to the EPA with a strong environmental record and a strong desire to improve on what has taken place during the last three decades," Bush said. "He understands the importance of clear standards in every environmental policy. He respects the ability of state and local governments to meet those standards, [and] rejects the old ways of command and control from above."

Leavitt will replace Christie Todd Whitman, who resigned in May.
