Schatz Statement on The Resignation of EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt

HONOLULU – U.S. Senator Brian Schatz (D-Hawai‘i) today issued the following statement after Scott Pruitt resigned from his post as administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).


“Scott Pruitt was unusually greedy and shamelessly corrupt, but his worst transgression was that he systematically worked on behalf of polluters to poison our air and our water and make climate change worse. I hope that the next administrator will actually care about protecting the air we breathe and the water we drink.”
