The head of the Environmental Protection Agency says he doesn't think agency morale has suffered from his decision to deny California a waiver needed to implement a tailpipe emissions reduction law.
EPA Administrator Stephen Johnson testified to a U.S. Senate committee a day after documents emerged showing that top career employees believed Johnson should grant the California waiver - or consider resigning.
Democratic Senator Frank Lautenberg of New Jersey asked Johnson
whether, in light of those documents, Johnson believed agency morale was suffering.
Johnson said no - adding that EPA has been rated among the top federal agencies to work for.
