On August 25, U.S. EPA Administrator Michael Regan announced the appointment of several new members to Local Government Advisory Committee and its Small Communities Advisory Subcommittee (SCAS), including his SCAS appointment of ECOS Oil & Gas Caucus Co-Chair Dave Glatt, Director of the North Dakota Department of Environmental Quality.
“I’m honored to welcome this diverse, highly qualified group of local leaders who will bring valuable insight and experience to the agency,” said Regan. “EPA is counting on their input and collaboration to help achieve our mission to protect public health and the environment in every zip code. From tackling climate change to advancing environmental justice, we need local partners at the table to address our most pressing environmental challenges.”
EPA received more than 150 nominations following a solicitation in March. Both groups plan to hold their first meeting this fall.
