FreedomWorks Applauds Nomination of Scott Pruitt to Lead the EPA

Following the appointment of Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt (R) to serve as administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), FreedomWorks CEO Adam Brandon commented:

“The EPA is one of the worst offenders of regulatory overreach, promulgating rules that ravage sectors of the American economy and hurt businesses and consumers. Attorney General Pruitt became a national leader in fighting executive overreach, the regulatory state, and unconstitutional laws. His knowledge of the Constitution and responsible approach to regulation make him an excellent choice to lead the EPA in the incoming administration. We urge the Senate to confirm Attorney General Pruitt’s nomination in the next Congress.”

FreedomWorks aims to educate, build, and mobilize the largest network of activists advocating the principles of smaller government, lower taxes, free markets, personal liberty and the rule of law. For more information, please visit or contact Jason Pye at
