Walker wants to reduce EPA's roleSubmitted: 07/28/2015
CHICAGO -

Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker wants to see changes to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

He thinks the E-P-A should become an "umbrella organization," with most of its powers shifted to state regulators.

Walker said he would not eliminate the EPA if he is elected president.

But, he would shift its powers and resources to state environmental agencies like Wisconsin's Department of Natural Resources.
