“I’m really excited about this opportunity and want to remain active in these discussions about public health and the environment,” McCabe said.
Howard Learner, executive director of ELPC, said the group was thrilled to bring someone with McCabe’s clout on board, considering the challenging political times for the environmental movement.
“Janet is terrific, and she is one of the nation’s leading clean air attorneys,” Learner said.
“Certainly her knowledge, experience and savvy in developing the Clean Air Act standards during the last administration will give us strong insights into what strategic actions we should take going forward in protecting public health and the environment.”
