EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt Visits Missouri, Discusses Ways to Rollback Energy Regulations

Washington, April 20, 2017 -

U.S. Rep. Blaine Luetkemeyer (MO-03) joined Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator Scott Pruitt in Clifton Hill, Mo., to discuss ways to keep energy rates affordable, protect the environment, and better partner with state and local stakeholders.

“During the Obama Administration, EPA bureaucrats in Washington often took actions that threatened Missouri families, farms, small businesses, and communities. Administrator Pruitt’s visit today to listen to us about our concerns is a stark contrast to the previous eight years. Affordable energy, good paying jobs, and property rights are top priorities for many Missourians, and after listening to Administrator Pruitt today, I am confident that we can work with him on the issues that are important to our state,” Luetkemeyer said. “I appreciate the administration’s efforts thus far to stop the Waters of the United States rule and to get the federal government’s regulatory footprint out of our local communities.”
