EIP’s Executive Director Eric Schaeffer and Betsy Southerland, former Director of the Office of Science Technology at EPA, discussed how the new Democratically controlled Congress is handing EPA oversight.

Schaeffer and Southerland answer questions including: How have the environmental hearings gone so far? How can the EPA staffing crisis be addressed? How can states become more involved? How can the booming fossil fuel industry be better regulated? What can we expect going into 2020? What are the prospects for the Green New Deal? And more.
