EPA Administrator Pruitt and Representative Shimkus meet to discuss environmental and economic issues


Audio

Speaker: Rep. John Shimkus

Transcript:  I think we are very excited. He’s a man of action and will streamline the process. He wants to protect the environment but he also knows that there’s job creation that we need to move forward on so I think there’s a lot of optimism that we can do those two full things. We can chew gum and walk, we can protect the environment and create jobs.

Well, hopefully it means remediation on some of our nastiest sights that have been put on hold whether that’s a Brownfield of whether that’s a Superfund site. You know, and then it also means that you’re going to create an environment of certainty for business so jobs can be created.
