EPA’s watchdog is scrutinizing ethics practices of agency’s former air policy chief

A key architect of the Trump administration’s
efforts to weaken federal climate rules is under scrutiny by a federal

government to ease carbon pollution limits. It is the third inquiry into whether Bill Wehrum,
who headed the Environmental Protection Agency’s air policy division
from November 2017 until last month, violated federal ethics rules.
