April 6, 2018
Press Release

Walnut Creek, CA – Today, Congressman Mark DeSaulnier (CA-11) called for the removal of United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator Scott Pruitt.

 “Administrator Pruitt’s anti-environment, anti-public health, and pro-corporation decisions prove that he is not fit to be EPA Administrator. Given his abysmal performance, flagrant abuse of power, and ethics violations, I am calling for his removal. I am joined by over 60 colleagues and close to a thousand constituents in our conviction that he is not fit for the post, and immediate action should be taken.”

Congressman DeSaulnier has sent numerous letters to Administrator Pruitt expressing concern for Pruitt's policy positions and rollbacks of environmental regulations, and today signed a letter to President Trump calling for his removal.
