Action Alert: Urge Your Senators to REJECT Nominee Scott Pruitt for EPA Administrator!

EPA Nominee Unqualified for Position

Ask Senators Capito and Manchin to vote NO on the nomination of Scott Pruitt for Environmental Protection Agency Administrator.

During last week's confirmation hearing, Mr. Pruitt demonstrated again and again that he is unqualified to head an agency whose mission is to protect human health and the environment.

Mr. Pruitt’s record shows he prioritizes profits and corporations over people and the environment. Throughout his career he has taken anti-science and anti-environment stances that disqualify him to serve as EPA Administrator.

We rely on EPA and its enforcement of the Clean Water Act as a last line of defense for the health of West Virginia’s rivers and streams. We must have an EPA leader who respects science and upholds national environmental laws.

The Senate will vote on his nomination as early as Tuesday, 1/24, please contact Senators Capito and Manchin and urge them to vote NO on Scott Pruitt for EPA Administrator!
