Scott Pruitt Will Reform the EPA

Following the Senate’s confirmation of Scott Pruitt as director of the Environmental Protection Agency, FreedomWorks CEO Adam Brandon made the following statement:

“Scott Pruitt knows that we don’t have to strangle businesses with red tape to protect the environment and have good safety standards. Many of our regulations ignore its effect on the ability of families across the country to put food on the table. We’re excited to see Pruitt reform the EPA, begin the process of rolling back regulations of the EPA to allow small businesses and our whole economy to thrive, and restore the authority of the states to regulate based on their individual needs.”
