NPC Luncheon with EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy

November 21, 2016 12:30 PM

Location: Ballroom

EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy will speak at a National Press Club luncheon on Nov. 21.

She plans to focus on the environmental and public health legacy of the Obama Administration, with an emphasis on efforts to combat the global effects of climate change.

Under McCarthy's leadership, the EPA helped penalize Volkswagen for cheating on diesel emissions, advocated for regulations to reduce methane emissions from the oil and gas sector, promoted a sweeping federal rule to cut carbon dioxide emission from power plants and worked to expand federal authority under the Clean Water Act.

McCarthy also admitted that EPA placed too much trust in Michigan's Department of Environmental Quality, the main culprit for the Flint water crisis.

Lunch will be served at 12:30 p.m., with remarks beginning at 1 p.m., followed by a question-and-answer session ending at 2 p.m. Tickets cost $24 for Press Club members (NPC Members may purchase 2 tickets at this rate) and $38 for all other non-member tickets. For questions, please email or call (202) 662–7501. Tickets must be paid for at the time of purchase.
