Wheeler's EPA is just as dysfunctional as Scott Pruitt's. (Slate, 2/27/2019)
Wheeler now has several months as acting administrator under his belt, and the Senate will soon vote to confirm him as permanent EPA administrator. But from the evidence so far, it seems that Wheeler’s quiet effectiveness has not materialized, and his EPA is still plagued by the same institutional pathologies that characterized Pruitt’s tenure (though not the same ethics violations). Under Wheeler, the EPA is still putting the environment and Americans’ health in peril by working to erase or weaken major environmental rules.
