EPA Administer Promises Back-to-Basics Agenda

Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Scott Pruitt has promised a back-to-basics agenda approach for the federal agency. While visiting a Pennsylvania coal mine, Pruitt announced the new focus “means returning EPA to its core mission: protecting the environment by engaging with state, local,and tribal partners to create sensible regulations that enhance economic growth.” In his speech to Pennsylvania miners, Administrator Pruitt explained that the EPA would be partnering with states and tribes to ensure a “thoughtful approach is used to maximize resources to protect America’s air, land, and water.”

The agenda reinforces Pruitt’s pledge to refocus EPA on its intended mission, returning power to the states, and creating an environment where jobs can grow.
