EPA administrator delivers ECOS fall meeting keynote address

EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy delivered the keynote remarks at the fall meeting of the Environmental Council of the States (ECOS) in Newport, Rhode Island.

She discussed the agency’s cooperation with the states' environmental goals, such as protecting vulnerable communities, the climate and improving the way in which environmental organizations work.

“The meeting serves as a forum for discussion of important policy issues among states, EPA, other federal agencies, NGOs, industry, and others,” ECOS Executive Project Manager Lia Parisian recently told the EP News Wire.

The EPA drafted its own remarks in the speech, although ECOS provided input on what members had an interest in hearing about.
