Jul. 29, 2013
CAMBRIDGE, Mass. (AP) — The Environmental Protection Agency says its new administrator will be at Harvard Law School to make her first public remarks since the U.S. Senate confirmed her appointment.
EPA Chief Gina McCarthy will speak at the school on Tuesday morning.
She is expected to talk about her commitment to President Barack Obama's plan to reduce carbon pollution and address the impacts of climate change.
McCarthy has worked in the environmental policy field for more than two decades, including by heading EPA's air pollution office since 2009.
Her past experience includes serving as commissioner of the Connecticut Department of Environmental Protection.
She also worked as an environmental adviser for Mitt Romney when he was Massachusetts governor.
Harvard Law School plans to carry the speech live on its website.
