VI Joins Coalition in Supporting Pruitt for EPA

Feb 2017

VI has joined a large coalition of industry and business groups in urging the Senate to confirm Scott Pruitt as Administrator of the EPA.  The letter called for a swift confirmation and the need for a stable regulatory environment.

“We believe Scott Pruitt will properly balance the need for environmental protection with economic growth and other interests,” the letter said.  “Mr. Pruitt also understands that when regulations go too far and fail to adequately balance environmental protection with technological feasibility and impacts to economy, they cease to be in the best interest of the public.”

Pruitt is expected to be confirmed early next week.  Once confirmed, reports indicate the administration will issue “several” executive orders, though no details have been provided.
