EPA Administrator Testifies on Science & Technology Programs

The House Committee on Science, Space, and Technology recently held a hearing on “Science and Technology at the EPA” which featured testimony from agency Administrator Michael Regan. In addition to annual appropriations for research and other activities, EPA also began distributing $10 billion in funding to address emerging contaminants under the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, which includes transformational investments in cleaning up PFAS and other emerging contaminants in water. 

Administrator Regan’s testimony provided an overview of key research priorities at EPA, including PFAS and wildfire contamination, lead exposures, and a wide variety of air and water research in support of the U.S. Global Change Research Program. The Administrator also fielded questions on proposed greenhouse gas emission regulations, waters of the U.S. rule, and chemical safety issues.
