U.S. Senate Confirms David Ross to Lead EPA Water Office

WASHINGTON  – (RealEstateRama) — U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator Scott Pruitt praised the U.S. Senate’s action to confirm David Ross to serve as the assistant administrator for EPA’s Office of Water.


“David Ross has a record of holding polluters accountable and navigating through complex environmental law on behalf of the state of Wisconsin,” said Administrator Scott Pruitt. “His expertise will be vital to the Agency as we look to keep our water clean and provide regulatory certainty for the stakeholder community.  I want to thank Leader McConnell and Chairman Barrasso for moving Mr. Ross through the confirmation process, and I look forward to the numerous contributions David will bring to the Agency’s water office.”

On October 25, 2017, the U.S. Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works, led by U.S. Senator John Barrasso (R-WY), advanced David Ross’s nomination out of committee.
