WASHINGTON - EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt released the following statement today, in support of the Office of Management and Budget's new guidance on implementing President Trump's plans for reorganizing the federal government and reducing the government workforce:

"EPA is returning to its core statutory mission, and focusing on greater value and results. EPA will partner with the states and tribes to ensure a thoughtful approach is used to maximize resources to protect our air, land, and water. And, we will work with EPA staff to effectively use every taxpayer dollar we are entrusted."
