Press Release

WASHINGTON, DC – Congresswoman Nita Lowey (D-NY17/Rockland-Westchester), Ranking Democrat on the House Appropriations Committee, today released the following statement:

“Scott Pruitt’s short tenure as Administrator of the EPA has been marred by a series of scandals and marked by a retreat from American environmental leadership. He has failed to carry out the mission of the EPA and has, in fact, undermined the critical work of the agency at every turn. Most egregiously, he has violated and exploited the public’s trust for his own benefit. I opposed Scott Pruitt’s nomination and confirmation, and now I call on him to resign. He should be replaced by a leader who will work to protect our environment, combat climate change, and restore America’s leadership in building a sustainable future.”
