Wheeler Set To Be Confirmed As EPA Chief

Reuters reports that the U.S. Senate is poised to confirm President Donald Trump’s EPA chairman candidate, Andrew Wheeler.

Wheeler’s nomination has cheered business interests eager to see reduced regulation.

The nomination upset Democrats and conservation groups worried that environmental rollbacks under the Trump administration are going too far.

Wheeler faced opposition from some Republicans, including Maine's Susan Collins.

Wheeler has experience as lobbyist for the coal industry.
