 ELPC watching closely to make sure Pruitt’s replacement is accountable for putting public health and environment ahead of polluters’ profits   

 

STATEMENT BY KEVIN BRUBAKER

DEPUTY DIRECTOR, ENVIRONMENTAL LAW & POLICY CENTER

In response to EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt’s resignation, Deputy Director Kevin Brubaker said:

“The ethically-impaired Scott Pruitt will not be missed.  But let’s not kid ourselves that his replacement will be any better for clean air and clean water.  Pruitt followed marching orders from the Trump Administration and polluters, and those orders haven’t changed. We’ll be watching Pruitt’s replacement Acting Administrator Andrew Wheeler closely and make sure he’s accountable for continued attacks on public health and our environment.”
