LIVE VIDEO: Confirmation Hearing For EPA Nominee

USA Today reports:

A rollback of mercury emissions standards. A revamp of clean water regulations. A retreat from a climate change agenda. Democrats have seethed as they helplessly watched the Trump administration undo or block a slew of Obama-era environmental proposals during the past two years.

On Wednesday, they will get a chance to grill President Donald Trump’s point person on deregulation when Andrew Wheeler goes to Capitol Hill for his confirmation hearing to be the next permanent administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency.

Wheeler is a former coal industry lobbyist.
