“The EPA has consistently avoided answering questions about the Gold King Mine disaster, even when under oath. Under oath, I requested drawings and design data from before the disaster, and I requested to know the name of any engineers who were involved in the planning and design of the Gold King Mine project. My requests have been repeatedly ignored by EPA Administrator McCarthy and her staff. Is the EPA admitting guilt through its silence or is the EPA just ignoring Congress? Whatever the answer, it is time for the EPA to own up to its failures and be forthcoming to the American people.” Click here for more about Westerman’s complaint against the EPA.
