Scott Pruitt, the new head of the EPA, had some interesting things to say on Saturday when he spoke at CPAC:
“I wanted to send a message to those at the agency — there are some very important things that the EPA does for this country,” Mr. Pruitt said on the final day of the Conservative Political Action Conference. “There are air quality issues and water quality issues that cross state line[s].”
“There’s some very important work to protect and provide leadership … but what’s happened over the last several years is the previous administration was so focused on climate change and so focused on CO2 that some of those other priorities were left behind,” he said.
He said some regulations will be rolled back in the near term “in a very aggressive way.”
“Next week, you may be hearing about some of those,” he said….”I think people across this country look at the EPA much like they look at the IRS,” he said, also saying he hoped to change that.
The left think Trumps administration is in “disarray.” I have a feeling that a year from now they are going to be surprised (and dismayed, poor dears) at the amount of work that gets done.
