EPA Chief Pruitt Accused Of Planning Tulsa Based EPA Office

Posted: Updated:
WASHINGTON, D.C. -

Washington D.C. newspapers say democratic lawmakers are asking for more information on whether EPA Chief Scott Pruitt is trying to build a new agency office in Tulsa.

The former Oklahoma attorney general is from Tulsa. The Hill reports lawmakers are looking into agency emails that explored the possibility. Implications are that Pruitt is having an office commissioned to make it more convenient for him, at the cost of taxpayer money. Members of the House Science Committee also believe the office would present ethical conflicts, though have specified what those would be

Lawmakers also requested documents from Pruitt's office. The inquiries are another in a series of accusations and scandals surrounding Pruitt. Pruitt has not yet responded to the current accusation.
