Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund Applauds EPA Administrator Pruitt for Bringing Accountability and Sensibility to “Once Politically-Driven Agency”


Atlanta, GA – Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund Chairman Jenny Beth Martin released the following statement today, reacting EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt newly released guidelines pertaining to the use of scientific findings in the rulemaking process at EPA.

“Today’s announcement by EPA Administrator Pruitt is long overdue. The EPA must have transparency and use peer-reviewed, objective science when crafting environmental policies that impact the lives of millions of Americans. The critics of this plan obviously have something to hide, which gives even more credibility to Administrator Pruitt’s effort to ensure that moving forward, EPA’s research is fact-based and absent of any partisan agenda. Administrator Pruitt should be commended for his work to bring accountability and sensibility back to a once politically-driven agency.”
