Barrasso: ‘The EPA Really Has Lost Its Way over the Last Eight Years’

‘It’s time to modernize, update, strengthen and improve the EPA and eliminate so many of the regulations that the last administration in its regulatory rampage has put forth that’s hurt our economy’

EXCERPT:

BARRASSO: "I think Scott Pruitt is an excellent choice to be the administrator in the Environmental Protection Agency. He’s had thorough vetting in the committee, answered over 1,000 questions. His vote will be this week. He is somebody who is attorney general in Oklahoma, fought to protect the environment, fought to strengthen the economy as well as stood up for states’ rights. The E.P.A really has lost its way over the last eight years, caused and been involved and responsible for some of the greatest environmental disasters that we've had in this country. It’s time to modernize, update, strengthen and improve the E.P.A and eliminate so many of the regulations that the last administration in its regulatory rampage has put forth that has hurt our economy and hurt our ability to use American energy."
