Pruitt’s Environmental Actions Under Question


One of the topics Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt might have to answer during his confirmation hearing to become Environmental Protection Agency Administrator is why he eliminated the Environmental Protection Unit in his state office six years ago.

The subject was raised in a recent Environment and Energy article by reporter Mike Soraghan who noted that Trump’s pick to run the EPA “has already eliminated one environmental protection entity during his time in government.”

He pointed out that while Pruitt eliminated the environmental protection unit he also created a Federalism Unit to handle legal challenges against the EPA.
