BEHNA: Over 400 Former EPA Workers Demand Senate To Block Scott Pruitt’s Confirmation

The leftists and environmentalists are trying to do everything to block President Trump’s EPA nominee Scott Pruitt from being confirmed.

In the most recent case, The Hill reports 447 former employees of the EPA wrote a letter to the Senate on Monday demanding they block Pruitt from confirmation.

In a letter to the Senate on Monday, 447 former EPA employees said that Scott Pruitt’s history of suing the agency as Oklahoma’s attorney general “strongly suggest that he does not share the vision or agree with the underlying principles of our environmental laws.”

The employees also said they are concerned about his views on the federal government’s role in environmental regulation and his opinion on the science behind climate change.

“Different administrators have come to different conclusions about how best to apply the law in view of the science, and many of their decisions have  been challenged in court, sometimes successfully, for either going too far or not far enough,” the group wrote in the letter.

“But in the large majority of cases it was evident to us that they put the public’s welfare ahead of private interests. Scott Pruitt has not demonstrated this same commitment.”

They apparently cannot stand the Trump administration wanting to reduce the size of the out of control EPA. Leftists are spreading scare tactics and fearmongering that abolishing or reducing the federal bureaucracy will kill the environment.

There is a lot of waste and corruption in the EPA. The left would oppose abolishment, but if they knew the 10th Amendment, they would understand environmental laws would just return to the states.

Scott Pruitt is a good pick for the agency. I am confident the Senate will confirm him despite Democrat resistance.
