Trump's Former EPA Transition Chief Sees Job Cuts as a Priority

Washington Examiner discusses proposed job cuts at the EPA with Myron Ebell.

The former head of Trump’s Environmental Protection Agency transition team is setting his sights on making sure proposed job cuts at the EPA stick as the agency’s budget makes its way through the House Appropriations Committee.

The 3,000-person cut is one of the only areas where House appropriators agreed with President Trump’s budget request.

“So, there will be a smaller EPA coming out of this, even though the budget cut was only about 6 or 7 percent, rather than 31 percent” that Trump requested, Myron Ebell told the Washington Examiner in an interview.

Ebell said the EPA-Interior budget bill that was voted out of the Approprations Committee’s Interior subcommittee this week will be the focus of a coalition he is part of that includes the libertarian Competitive Enterprise Institute, where he serves as environment and energy director, and other free-market think tanks and advocacy organizations.

“We are going to be pushing for larger cuts than Ken Calvert’s subcommittee voted out,” Ebell said.
