EPA Chief Pruitt Seeks Dialogue With Industry

Updated:

The former Oklahoma State Senator and State Attorney General who is now the head of the Environmental Protection Agency says his staff will now work in close partnership with industries the EPA regulates.
    
    EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt says he'll revive a Bush-era program to maintain an open dialogue with American businesses. Pruitt says the collaboration will boost the economy while delivering "better environmental outcomes."
    
    The EPA's announcement includes statements from industry leaders praising the initiative, including chemical manufactures, pesticide makers, electric utilities and oil and gas producers.
    
    At the EPA, Pruitt has worked to delay or roll back numerous Obama-era limits on air and water pollution. Pruitt also has said he's unsure about the consensus of climate scientists that man-made carbon emissions are the primary cause of global warming.
      Pruitt was elected as Oklahoma's Attorney General in 2010.

    While in that role, Pruitt sued the Environmental Protection Agency numerous times regarding the agency's action
