Pelosi Statement on Resignation of EPA Administrator Christine
May 21, 2003
Despite a complete lack of credible evidence, the Pentagon claims that environmental laws are interfering with military readiness. Testifying before a Senate committee in February, Administrator Whitman said, in a moment of candor, that she did not 'believe that there is a training mission anywhere in the country that is being held up or not taking place because of an environmental protection regulation.' In a typical display of the triumph of ideology over reality in the Bush Administration, Administrator Whitman was quickly muzzled by the White House.
The Administrations policies make a mockery of the Environmental
Protection Agency and its mission. Instead of protecting our precious natural
resources, this Administration is intent on rolling back more than 30 years
of bipartisan effort to protect the environment.
