OKFB President Tom Buchanan Praises Senate EPW Vote in Favor of Scott Pruitt for EPA Chief

Thu, 02 Feb 2017 16:25:05 CST

OKFB President Tom Buchanan Praises Senate EPW Vote in Favor of Scott Pruitt for EPA Chief Oklahoma Farm Bureau President Tom Buchanan released the following statement following the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee vote to advance Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt’s nomination to lead the Environmental Protection Agency.



“For years, farmers and ranchers have faced costly and overreaching regulations from the Environmental Protection Agency.



“As farmers and ranchers, we believe in protecting the environment; in fact, we are among the best stewards of the land, air, water and environment. But many times, the EPA has unnecessarily regulated family farmers and ranchers, hindering their efforts to maintain production of the world’s most abundant and highest quality food supply.



“The EPA is in need of an administrator who will protect the environment without inhibiting economic growth. We believe Attorney General Pruitt is the right person for the job. He believes in sound science, is committed to a transparent rule-making process, and understands how regulations affect the lives of Americans.



“We are pleased with the efforts of the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee, Chairman John Barrasso and Oklahoma Sen. Jim Inhofe in advancing Attorney General Pruitt’s nomination, and look forward to his confirmation on the Senate floor.”
