Pruitt as head of EPA, pleases agriculture groups and producers

published: December 8th 2016
source: Multiple News Sources

President-elect Donald Trump’s transition team announced yesterday, the selection of Oklahoma attorney general Scott Pruitt to lead the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).The announcement was met with praise and cheers by almost all of agriculture.

Pruitt has made a name for himself on the national stage by orchestrating numerous legal challenges to the EPA. In order to combat regulations imposed on the oil and gas industries in his state, he has sued, in multiple instances, the very agency he is now appointed to lead.

Pruitt’s selection has been met with criticism by environmental groups, but is consistent with Trump’s campaign rhetoric regarding the EPA. In an October 2015 interviewwith Chris Wallace on Fox New Sunday, for example, Trump (while defending his comment that he was open to eliminating the EPA) complained:

"What they [the EPA] do is a disgrace. Every week they come out with new regulations."
