Earthjustice to U.S. Senate: Oppose Pruitt’s Nomination to Lead EPA
Pruitt’s record shows hostility toward EPA’s role to protect our air and water
WASHINGTON - Today, Donald Trump’s nominee to lead the Environmental Protection Agency moved one step closer to confirmation when Republicans on the U.S. Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works voted for him despite a boycott from Democratic legislators for the second day in a row.
“People across our country have a right to clean air and water, and they deserve an Environmental Protection Agency Administrator who can be counted on to fight for the health and safety of all communities. Scott Pruitt has offered no indication that he can or would be that advocate for the public, so we urge all senators to oppose him on the floor.”
