Washington, D.C. ­– U.S. Senator Ben Ray Luján (D-N.M.) issued the following statement after the Senate voted to confirm Michael Regan as Administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA):

“With the climate crisis glaring before us, the EPA must be guided by a leader who will restore the role of science at the Agency and prioritize clean air and clean water in our communities.
