On Monday, a mom asked EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt to resign. Today, he did — showing the power of moms to drive change.
The ethical scandals swirling around Pruitt became too numerous to list. But far worse was his role in the scandalous rolling back of clean air protections, and his wholesale undermining of the Clean Air Act, a bedrock public health law that guards our children against harmful pollution.
Moms have been fighting against Pruitt since his nomination because of his record of suing EPA at every opportunity to line the pockets of corporate polluters. His actions as EPA Administrator only deepened our opposition, as he took every opportunity to undermine the health of our most precious resource — our children.
Make no mistake: Moms will continue to hold any new EPA administrator accountable to the same high standards to which we held Scott Pruitt. Our top priority is protecting our children’s health and America’s right to clean and safe air and water. Moms will accept nothing less.
