William K. Reilly Said He Really Wanted to Participate

Norris McDonald , right, spoke to former EPA Administrator Bill Reilly, left, after his testimony before the Senate Environment & Public Works Committee on the implications of the April 2 Supreme Court Decision on regulating carbon dioxide. Reilly told McDonald that he really wanted to participate in the EJ 2007 Conference but a previous commitment could not be rescheduled. Reilly was the mastermind behind the big TXU deal, which was in play during the time of the EJ conference.

As previously reported on this blog, Bill Reilly initiated environmental justice at EPA, establishing the Office on Environmental Justice. He also received a standing ovation from the environmental justice community at his last meeting with EJ stakeholders from all over the country. Reilly was EPA Administrator under President Bush 41 from 1989-1992.
