Senator Collins Stands Up for the Planet With No Vote on Pruitt

Statement from Nisha Swinton, Senior Organizer, Food & Water Watch:

"In announcing that she will not support Trump EPA pick Scott Pruitt, Senator Collins has shown that she listened to the thousands of Mainers who called her office, wrote her letters and marched outside her offices. This brave decision shows that Senator Collins is committed to protecting our environment from corporate polluters. The Trump administration poses a real threat to clean air and water, and we expect her to join in us for the long haul as we resist Trump's dangerous, pro-polluting agenda."

Food & Water Watch mobilizes regular people to build political power to move bold and uncompromised solutions to the most pressing food, water, and climate problems of our time. We work to protect people's health, communities, and democracy from the growing destructive power of the most powerful economic interests.
