Scott Pruitt Fires Back When Speaking On Environmental Regulations

Posted: Updated:
TULSA, Oklahoma -

Scott Pruitt is fighting back against claims that he’s been too quick to roll back environmental regulations.

Pruitt says he wants to balance protecting the environment with growing jobs.

“Over the years, we as a country have reduced those pollutants that we regulate under the clean air act by 65 while also growing an economy,” said Pruitt. “So, we do it better than anyone in the world in that regard, finding that balance."
