#SubEnvironment Announces December 7 Hearing with EPA Administrator Pruitt


WASHINGTON, DC – House Energy and Commerce Committee Chairman Greg Walden (R-OR) and Environment Subcommittee Chairman John Shimkus (R-IL) today announced that #SubEnvironment will be holding a hearing on Thursday, December 7, 2017 featuring Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator Scott Pruitt.

“We’re looking forward to receiving a much-needed update from Mr. Pruitt on his priorities for the agency, including his stated policy of getting EPA “back to the basics” and its impact on the agency’s activity going forward,” said Walden and Shimkus. “Following EPA’s controversial and expansive interpretation of its authorities during the past administration, it is past time for EPA to refocus on pursuing its important public health and environmental missions as Congress originally intended.”

More information on the hearing will be available on the committee’s website HERE as it is made available.
