American Bridge Statement On Scott Pruitt Nomination Hearing

Jan 17, 2017

Ahead of Scott Pruitt’s nomination hearing before the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee on Wednesday, American Bridge President Jessica Mackler released the following statement:

“As Oklahoma’s Attorney General, Scott Pruitt repeatedly sued the agency he now hopes to lead, lending his name to any letters or lawsuits that Big Oil asked him to support.”

“The only explanation for Pruitt’s eagerness to lead the EPA is that he hopes to continue his track record of taking fossil fuel money then using his influence to help polluters maximize their profit margins while the American people pay the price. Donald Trump hopes to profit off the presidency and that’s why he’s surrounding himself with people like Scott Pruitt, a big donor puppet who will be a willing accomplice in Trump’s work to enrich himself as president.”
