Reject Governor-Elect Youngkin’s nomination of Andrew Wheeler

Please write to your Virginia Senator today and ask that they reject Governor-Elect Youngkin’s nomination of Andrew Wheeler to be Virginia’s next Secretary of Natural Resources.  A former coal lobbyist, Wheeler was head of the EPA under former President Trump where he worked to undermine years of bipartisan progress to protect our environment. We can’t let this happen in Virginia!

Ask VA State Senators to reject Andrew Wheeler as VA's next Secretary of Natural Resources!
