It should come as no surprise that another Democrat in the U.S. Senate has publicly announced opposition to Attorney General Scott Pruitt to take over at the Environmental Protection Agency.
Here’s how Politico’s Morning Energy Report stated the news:
“DURBIN LATEST ‘NO’ ON PRUITT: No. 2 Senate Democrat Dick Durbin invoked a novel rationale in announcing his opposition to Scott Pruitt’s EPA nomination: concerns over whether he’d sufficiently address lead. “No amount of lead is safe for our children. We need a strong @EPA leader who is committed to removing this hazard from our water and homes,” the Illinois Democrat tweeted. He added he had “no confidence” the Oklahoma attorney general would be committed to the agency’s mission of protecting human health and the environment.”
