QUIGLEY STATEMENT ON CONFIRMATION OF SCOTT PRUITT AS ADMINISTRATOR OF THE ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY

WASHINGTON – (RealEstateRama) — U.S. Representative Mike Quigley (IL-05), a vice-chair of the House Sustainable Energy and Environment Coalition (SEEC), released the following statement on the confirmation of Scott Pruitt as the next Administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency.

“Now that Scott Pruitt has been confirmed as the new Administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency, he must commit himself to the agency’s mission of ensuring that America has clean air, clean water, a stable climate and abundant natural resources. Mr. Pruitt has to understand that his responsibilities are to the American people, not to the fossil fuel companies whose issues he has championed in the past.

More than ever before, America needs a strong Environmental Protection Agency committed to confronting pressing challenges, such as climate change, that threaten ecosystems around the world and the lives and livelihoods of millions of Americans. I will do everything in my power to ensure Mr. Pruitt remains accountable to the mission and responsibilities of his new job.”

Mike Quigley was elected to Congress to represent Illinois’ 5th District on April 7, 2009. A former Cook County Commissioner who began his career through community service in the Lakeview neighborhood, Mike has served his community for more than thirty years. His election to Congress was an opportunity to take his unique style of reform-minded politics, which Chicagoans have known for years, from Cook County to Washington.

In Washington, Mike has made government reform and fiscal responsibility the cornerstones of his legislative agenda. By starting from scratch and asking tough questions about what the government actually needs, his innovative “Reinventing Government” reports lay out detailed plans for streamlining the federal budget and reducing our deficit by $2 trillion over the next 10 years.
