Our guest is EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt.
He’s been in the news lately, with questions about a room he rented on Capitol Hill and the costs of his travel and security detail.
This was not why we initially wanted to speak to him, though we did ask him those questions.
In this conversation, which was taped in The Washington Times newsroom with the video live-streamed online, my guest co-host Charlie Hurt and I discussed his mission at EPA, how it is working with President Trump, and what he believes he has accomplished in his first 16 months on the job.
We then specifically talked about the “Waters of the U.S.” regulation, Superfund cleanup, fuel economy standards for automobiles, ethanol and the renewable fuel standard, and the decision to pull out of the Paris Climate Accord.
