Washington, D.C. - Senator Tom Cotton (R-Arkansas) today released the following statement after meeting with the nominee for Administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency Scott Pruitt:
"Scott Pruitt has been a tireless fighter of overregulation and government overreach as Oklahoma's Attorney General and I'm confident he will make an excellent Administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency. Scott knows Arkansans and most Americans know the needs of their land far better than Washington bureaucrats do. During out meeting we discussed the impact EPA regulations are having on Arkansas farms, businesses, and energy companies; Fort Smith's issues with EPA's consent decree, and ways to lower water and energy costs for all Arkansans. I look forward to supporting his nomination."
