WASHINGTON  – Today, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator Scott Pruitt praised the U.S. Senate’s action to confirm, by voice vote, Susan Bodine, to serve as the assistant administrator for EPA’s Office of Enforcement and Compliance Assurance (OECA).  Bodine’s confirmation to serve as the Agency’s lead enforcer is vital to Administrator Pruitt’s commitment to return the Agency to the rule of law and aggressively pursue those who violate environmental laws. 

“Susan Bodine has dedicated her career to public service and improving human health and the environment,” said Administrator Scott Pruitt. “I want to thank Leader McConnell and Chairman Barrasso for continuing to provide leadership in helping shepherd Susan’s confirmation through the Senate.  I look forward to working with Susan to ensure stakeholders across the country are in compliance with the law and that polluters continue to be held accountable.”  

On July 17, 2017, the U.S. Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works, led by U.S. Senator John Barrasso (R-WY), advanced Susan Bodine’s nomination out of committee.
