American Farm Bureau Federation Hails Scott Pruitt Confirmation, Calling it a "Breath of Fresh Air"

Fri, 17 Feb 2017 15:36:44 CST

American Farm Bureau Federation Hails Scott Pruitt Confirmation, Calling it a The following may be attributed to Zippy Duvall, president, American Farm Bureau Federation:

Scott Pruitt’s confirmation to lead the Environmental Protection Agency will bring a breath of fresh air to the post. America’s farmers and ranchers look forward to working with Administrator Pruitt as he leads the EPA with a welcome level of common sense in the important job of protecting the environment.



“For too long, farmers and ranchers have been victims of EPA’s harsh regulatory overreach. Farmers are conservationists to the core and we want to play a positive, cooperative role in protecting the environment we rely on to produce food for this nation.



“In his position as attorney general in Oklahoma, Pruitt stood up for common-sense, effective regulation that protects the environment and the rights of the regulated community. We’re optimistic that he will retain those same values as administrator and we look forward to working with him. But what we truly look forward to is working with someone at EPA who understands how farmers and ranchers care for our nation’s natural resources each and every day.”
