In a letter to EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson sent Sunday, Al Armendariz says he regrets his words and stresses that they do not reflect his work as administrator of the five-state region including Texas, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Arkansas and Louisiana.
Last Friday, EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson said Armendariz’s words were "disappointing" and didn’t reflect how her agency works. "[T]hey’re not representative of the agency; they don’t reflect any policy that we have; and they don’t reflect our actions over the past two years."
