Tell Scott Pruitt: Meet with scientists, health experts and environmental advocates, too!

Skip to sign

The EPA is responsible for protecting our nation's environment and protecting public health -- especially the air we breathe and the water we drink. But Scott Pruitt, Trump's EPA Administrator, is cozying up to industry lobbyists, protecting polluters, and ignoring the public.

Pruitt has made over a hundred appointments to meet with representatives of the fossil fuel industry but only five appointments to meet with environmentalists.

And he has proposed cutting the EPA budget and staff -- the resources needed to do the job of protecting the public -- by nearly a third.

As attorney general, Pruitt sued the EPA 14 times and maintained that the EPA should be eliminated. In his political campaigns he has received over $300,000 in campaign donations from the oil and gas industry.

The American people deserve an EPA that listens to scientists, public health professionals, and environmental advocates, not one that is beholden to the industries it is supposed to regulate.
