Bloomberg BNA Daily Environment Report Quotes James Aidala on Upcoming EPA Budget Cuts

Bergeson & Campbell, P.C.

In the February 28, 2017, Bloomberg BNA Daily Environment ReportJames V. Aidala, Senior Government Affairs Consultant with Bergeson & Campbell P.C. (B&C®) was quoted in the article “As Budget Cuts Loom, Industry Seeks to Save Some EPA Programs.”

Staff already has grappled with smaller conference travel budgets, cuts in discretionary expenses, and less contractor support to assist with reducing environmental and health risks, said Jim Aidala, former EPA assistant administrator under President Bill Clinton and now a senior government affairs consultant with Bergeson & Campbell, P.C.


Myron Ebell, a director at the Competitive Enterprise Institute and former environmental adviser to Trump, said earlier this year that the administration could cut the agency’s staff levels by two-thirds.

“Good luck with that,” Aidala told Bloomberg BNA, responding to the possibility of such a drastic cut. “It would be very tough to do it.” [subscription required]
