South Carolina Builders Meet with EPA Leaders

Former HBA of South Carolina President Steven Mungo represented the HBA at a “waters of the U.S.” roundtable discussion July 24 with Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Scott Pruitt – the fourth stop on a State Action Tour the agency is conducting to gauge the pulse of industries most affected by federal regulations.

Pruitt gave attendees a status update on the 2015 WOTUS rule and explained what a new rule would look like. He then listened to the home building industry’s perspective on EPA regulations.

The event, held in Cameron, S.C., was hosted by state Agriculture Commissioner Hugh Weathers. Joining Weathers was state Attorney General Alan Wilson, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R), Rep. Joe Wilson (R) and state Senator Danny Verdin.

Also attending the roundtable were HBA of South Carolina Executive Director Mark Nix and BIA of Central South Carolina Executive Director Earl McLeod.

Pruitt and top EPA officials held previous events in Salt Lake City, Minneapolis and Little Rock, Ark. For additional information, contact Owen McDonough at 202-266-8662.
