Today, Bold Alliance joined 173 environmental and citizens’ groups in a joint letter urging all U.S. Senators to reject Scott Pruitt’s nomination to lead the Environmental Protection Agency. (View the full letter below.)
Pruitt, the former Oklahoma Attorney General, has actively worked against the mission of the EPA he has been nominated to lead — and he should be rejected by the Senate.
Donald Trump’s EPA nominee Scott Pruitt:
- Has repeatedly sued the EPA to block clean air and clean water standards that will protect the health and well-being of millions of Americans.
- Denies the overwhelming scientific consensus that climate change is real and is driven by human-made air pollution.
- Has repeatedly argued that EPA should have little or no role in protecting Americans’ health and well-being from air and water pollution.
- Has sued the EPA to overturn clean water safeguards for more than half the nation’s waterways, including streams that feed into the drinking water supplies of 117 million Americans.
