West Virginia AG Morrisey opposes Biden pick for EPA air office chief

West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrisey on Wednesday wrote a letter to U.S. Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and Senate Minority Leader Sen. Mitch McConnell opposing President Joe Biden’s pick to head the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s air office. 

The Biden administration nominated Joseph Goffman to lead the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Office of Air and Radiation.

“During his time as an officer with former President Obama’s EPA, and in his present position Principal Deputy Assistant for the Air Office, Mr. Goffman has been directly involved in — and often led — some of EPA’s most problematic proposals,” Attorney General Morrisey wrote, noting in the letter that Goffman, “…. seems to prefer regulatory measures that destabilize our grid, hamper our economy, eliminate jobs, and disregard Congress’s authority.”
