JDCA Statement on Resignation of EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt

July 5, 2018

JDCA welcomes the resignation of EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt. We hope that Pruitt’s resignation will lead to stronger protections for our environment, and meaningful action by the Trump administration to recognize and combat the undeniable reality of climate change. We call upon Acting EPA Administrator Andrew Wheeler to quickly restore integrity to the agency’s operations, eliminating the endemic corruption that flourished under Pruitt. It’s long past time that the EPA administrator focus the issue that matters the most in this critical role – protecting our environment.
