WASHINGTON --A group of 40 Kentucky business leaders representing Commerce Lexington (The Greater Lexington Chamber of Commerce), met with U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator, a native of Danville, Ky., on Wednesday.“It gives me great pride to welcome business leaders from my home state of Kentucky at EPA headquarters,” said Administrator Pruitt. “EPA is getting back to the basics by focusing on positive environmental outcomes, while also providing more regulatory certainty for job creators. I look forward to visiting Majority Leader McConnell and Governor Bevin later this year in the Bluegrass State.”

“Administrator Pruitt's resolve and determination to get action on key environmental sites nationwide is incredibly impressive,” said Bob Babbage, a member of Commerce Lexington and Parter of consulting firm, Babbage Cofounder. “Especially where science, environmental experts and companies are joined together.”
