Congressman from Koch Attacks $30,000 EPA Intern Program

No program is too small for House Republicans to go after, especially ones encouraging young people to learn about environmental protection.

Representative Mike Pompeo, who represents the Kansas district that is the headquarters for the GOP-friendlyand anti-regulatoryKoch Industries, has criticized the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)s internship program for only including students who, he says, share President Barack Obamas radical views on the environment.

Pompeo said spending $6,000 of taxpayer money per student to act as tools of this Administrations radical policies is clearly not acceptablenor is it ever the role of the federal government to indoctrinate.

The Environmental Justice Eco-Ambassadors program, budgeted to spend $30,000 so five graduate students can spend time working at the EPA, requires applicants to have been involved and/or have a strong interest in environmental justice, social justice issues and/or environmental health disparities in an academic, volunteer and/or employment setting.
