WASHINGTON, D.C. — April 7, 2018 — Congressman Eliot L. Engel, a top member on the House Energy and Commerce Committee, issued the following statement calling for the resignation or firing of Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator Scott Pruitt:

“It is long past time for Scott Pruitt to resign or be terminated from his post as Administrator of the EPA.

“When Mr. Pruitt was nominated, I called him a ‘dangerous and unacceptable choice to lead the EPA’ because his past actions had shown an unyielding disdain for science, a deep disregard for our environment, and a general antipathy for the Agency he was tapped to run.

“Since then, he has shown the consistent contempt for the environment that I expected, but perhaps even worse, he has abused the public trust and trampled on the ethical guidelines that are designed to ensure that the Government’s business is conducted with impartiality and integrity.

“The person appointed to run the EPA should be someone who cares about protecting the health and safety of people all across the country, not someone who wages war on clean air and clean water and puts our climate in peril.  Nothing less than the future of our children is at stake.

“It is time for Mr. Pruitt to go.”
