WASSERMAN SCHULTZ ON TRUMP’S EPA PICK SCOTT PRUITT

Washington D.C. – (RealEstateRama) — U.S. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (FL-23) issued the following statement on Scott Pruitt, President Trump’s pick to lead the Environmental Protection Agency:

“It’s hard to imagine a more destructive pick to lead the Environmental Protection Agency than Scott Pruitt, a climate science doubter who sued the agency he’s cynically being asked to lead more than a dozen times. Any Republican Senator who votes for Pruitt is basically handing matches to an arsonist. Sea levels are already encroaching on Florida’s coasts, forcing local taxpayers to spend millions of dollars to fend off a problem that will only get worse under Pruitt. The EPA desperately needs a leader who wants to protect our water, land and air — not a pollution apologist who will try to destroy it.”
