Eustace on Confirmation of Pruitt as EPA Chief

(TRENTON) - Assemblyman Tim Eustace (D-Bergen, Passaic) issued the following statement in regards to the recent confirmation of Scott Pruitt as the U.S. Environmental Chief:

"Without formal scientific or environmental training, Pruitt will not be able to lead this agency with the compassion, knowledge and experience necessary to navigate pressing issues such as climate change and preserving our environmental resources.
