WASHINGTON, D.C. – The Fertilizer Institute (TFI) President and CEO Corey Rosenbusch today released the below statement in response to the U.S. Senate’s confirmation of Michael Regan as U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator.
“TFI and the fertilizer industry congratulate Michael Regan on being confirmed as EPA administrator.
