President-elect Joe Biden is nominating Michael Regan to lead the EPA, putting a North Carolina environmental regulator in line to chart national policy on combating climate change and pollution, according to people familiar with the matter.

If confirmed, Regan would become the first Black man to be Environmental Protection Agency administrator, taking the helm of an agency at which he worked for nearly a decade under two presidents.
