National Pork Producers Council President John Weber Reacts to Scott Pruitt's Confirmation to EPAFri, 17 Feb 2017 15:09:16 CST
The National Pork Producers Council released the following statement today in reference to Scott Pruitt's confirmation as the Environmental Protection Agency's new Administrator.
“NPPC congratulates Scott Pruitt on his confirmation as EPA administrator. He’s a champion for American agriculture who relies on science and supports the rule of law in advancing common sense regulations that will protect our environment without overburdening farmers.
“As Oklahoma attorney general, he struck a balance between protecting the environment and protecting the livelihoods of farmers and business owners. Everyone, particularly farmers, wants to have clean air and water and to preserve and protect our natural resources. But you don’t achieve those goals by piling regulations on the very people who are the stewards of the land, air and water. Scott Pruitt understands that, and that will serve him well as EPA administrator.”
