EPA Administrator to visit North Dakota
U.S. Senator Heidi Heitkamp invited Gina McCarthy, Administrator for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), to visit North Dakota and see how recent policies impact the state’s energy industry. Heitkamp said that she hopes the visit will see how new rules being developed will have a negative impact on places like North Dakota. Heitkamp has been calling for the EPA to visit the state since a recent 11-city tour was announced that overlooked North Dakota. This visit to North Dakota will allow McCarthy to hear from folks who have to implement and fulfill EPA regulations. Read the full news release from Senator Heitkamp’s website.
