Formation

Special message from President Nixon,

To the Congress of the United States:

As concern with the condition of our physical environment has intensified, it has become increasingly clear that we need to know more about the total environment--land, water, and air. It also has become increasingly clear that only by reorganizing our Federal efforts can we develop that knowledge, and effectively ensure the protection, development and enhancement of the total environment itself.

President Nixon expresses the need for the EPA in the 70s, it has stayed in power and been influential in our government ever since.
