Feb. 16, 2017, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement praising the U.S. Senate for moving forward the nomination EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt:
“The war on coal is over. With the confirmation of EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt, a fresh clean air will be blowing through the agency washes away the moldy remains of the Obama’s environmental attack on America’s free enterprise system. Any bureaucrat in the agency who does not support Pruitt’s leadership should resign immediately and get out of the way of making America work again.
“And those politicians who voted against the Pruitt nomination told the workers in their states they prefer San Francisco radical environmentalist campaign cash over the votes and livelihoods of their constituents.
“The EPA’s shutting down the coal industry was designed to destroy U.S. manufacturing jobs by threatening our electric grid, through massive numbers of coal power plant closures. Manufacturing cannot exist without reliable electricity, and Pruitt will make certain that infrastructure is not needlessly dismantled by environmental extremists posing as regulators.”
