EPA Administrator Pruitt Previews President Trump’s Executive Order on Energy Independence
“We have made tremendous progress on our environment, we can be both pro-jobs and pro-environment.”
WASHINGTON – During an interview on “This Week with George Stephanopoulos,” U.S. EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt previewed the President’s upcoming executive order on the American Energy Independence. Administrator Pruitt laid out the core message of the pending action, saying that job growth and a healthy environment aren’t at odds.
“George, the President is keeping his promise to the American people this week with respect to the Executive Order coming down on Tuesday--. the Energy Independence Executive Order. We need a pro-growth and pro-environment approach for how we do regulations in this country. For too long, we have accepted a narrative that if you're pro-growth, pro-jobs, you're anti-environment. That's not where we have been as a country. We have made tremendous progress on our environment, we can be both pro-jobs and pro-environment. The Executive Order will address the past administration's effort to kill jobs throughout the country through the Clean Power Plan.”
