WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Republican Attorneys General Association Chairman Luther Strange released the following statement regarding President-elect Donald Trump's intent to select Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt as Administrator to the Environmental Protection Agency.
“President-elect Trump could not have made a better choice than Scott Pruitt to lead the EPA. General Pruitt has been at the front lines of the fight against federal overregulation, including the unconstitutional Clean Power Plan. He understands the need to protect our environment while also allowing responsible development of our vast natural resources. RAGA is losing a valued member, but the country is gaining a talented individual who will help President Trump restore America’s economic strength.”
