A Statement from Senator Kirsten Gillibrand:

A Statement from Senator Kirsten Gillibrand:

“The mission of EPA is to protect human health and the environment. Attorney General Scott Pruitt has fought the agency’s actions to protect clean air and clean water. During the confirmation process, Mr. Pruitt and I had a frank and expansive conversation in which we explored his record and views on a number of issues that are important for New York. During his confirmation hearing, Mr. Pruitt failed to show that he would take action to fight climate change and the challenges it poses, hold polluters accountable, and ensure that all New Yorkers have clear air to breathe and clean water to drink. Mr. Pruitt has also failed to address the numerous conflicts of interests he would face. I do not believe he has the qualifications necessary to be an effective EPA Administrator.”
