Each state’s delegation typically consists of leaders and stakeholders from its environmental and health agencies, and highly experienced individuals from outside state government.

He is a nationally recognized environmental lawyer with a distinguished career at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and a decades-long tenure as Chair of Preti Flaherty’s Environmental Group.
