Oklahoma's US Senator Jim Inhofe Appluads Confirmation of Scott Pruitt to Lead the EPA

Fri, 17 Feb 2017 15:18:43 CST

Oklahoma's US Senator Jim Inhofe Appluads Confirmation of Scott Pruitt to Lead the EPA US Sen. Jim Inhofe , senior member of the U.S. Senate Environment and Public Works (EPW) Committee, today applauded the Senate for confirming Scott Pruitt as administrator of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Pruitt was confirmed by a vote of 52-46.

“Scott Pruitt is highly qualified, principled man, and will make an exceptional EPA Administrator,” Inhofe said. “I have known Scott for many years and have been privileged to work with him in his role as Oklahoma Attorney General. He understands the need for balance - something the EPA has been lacking for far too long as evidenced by the federal overreach, unlawful rule making, and duplicative red tape under the last administration. Pruitt will restore balance to the agency by simply upholding the laws passed by Congress, nothing more and nothing less. I have no doubt that Scott will return the EPA to its core objectives as a regulatory agency, prioritizing the environment without harming state and private interests. I look forward to working with Scott in his new role and am pleased the Senate has voted to confirm him.”
