EPA’s Pruitt Brings Welcome Reform Message to the Nation’s Manufacturers


This week, new U.S. EPA administrator Scott Pruitt visited with the board of directors of the National Association of Manufacturers. Pruitt presented an encouraging message of reform of the nation’s cumbersome and costly regulatory regime. One welcome theme of Pruitt was a call for more flexibility for the state to manage environmental regulations, rather than heavy-handed, one-size-fits-all federal mandates.  3/9/2017  Pictured: OMA president Eric Burkland with U.S. EPA administrator Scott Pruitt
