Tea Party Patriots Congratulates Scott Pruitt on his Confirmation as EPA Administrator


Atlanta, GA – Tea Party Patriots President and co-founder Jenny Beth Martin released the following statement today, congratulating Scott Pruitt on his confirmation as the next Administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency.

“Tea Party Patriots and our grassroots activists around the country congratulate Scott Pruitt on his confirmation as our next EPA Administrator. In his previous job as Attorney General of Oklahoma, Mr. Pruitt had a long record of trying to keep the federal government operating within its constitutional bounds. He stood with our supporters in the fight to repeal Obamacare and joined with other states to bring a lawsuit against the Obama EPA’s so-called ‘Clean Power Plan’ regulations. We know Scott Pruitt is a man of action who understands the threat of an unchecked Executive Branch abusing its regulatory powers. We thank President Trump for nominating him and look forward to working with him to oppose those who want to use the EPA to wage war on farmers, job creators, and our sovereignty.”
