EPA Administrator to speak at Great Plains Energy Conference


A big name has been booked for next month's Great Plains Energy Conference, EmpowerND.

Among the guests for the day-long conference is US EPA Administrator Andrew Wheeler.

In February, the US Senate confirmed Wheeler as the 15th administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency.

Wheeler will lead a discussion on the EPA's priorities regarding energy policy, balancing responsible environmental protection and economic opportunity.

The conference begins just after 8 a.m. at Bismarck State College, and Wheeler will speak at approximately 9:50 a.m.
