Add your name and help us #BootPruitt
Scott Pruitt has one job to do: protect public health and the environment, literally the mission statement of the US. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Instead, he has been hard at work rolling back critical health protections like the Clean Power Plan, refusing to ban dangerous pesticides, and attacking clean cars standards.
On Wednesday, Pruitt appeared before the Senate Appropriations Committee to try to justify his support for defunding critical environmental programs that keep our air, water, and soil safe.
Enough is enough. It’s time to stop Pruitt’s pro-pollution agenda.
Can you take two seconds to sign this petition calling for Scott Pruitt to resign?
ADD YOUR NAME
Since becoming EPA Administrator, Scott Pruitt has come under fire for his dirty dealings, abuse of taxpayer dollars, and efforts to undermine science and public health. Pruitt is under multiple investigations for a growing list of ethics violations.
Now is the time to fight back.
More than 170 Democratic members of Congress have called for Pruitt’s resignation. Civil rights groups like the NAACP and dozens of environmental groups have joined the fight.
And now, Republican Senator Chuck Grassley of Iowa has threatened to join if Scott Pruitt doesn’t stop approving waivers for oil companies, allowing them to bypass the ethanol mandate in the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS). (Iowa produces much of the corn for biofuel, so Pruitt’s waivers for oil companies hurt corn growers too).
Americans deserve an EPA administrator who upholds the mission of the EPA. Will you add your name and help us #BootPruitt?
Not on our watch will we let Scott Pruitt dismantle our clean energy progress while threatening the health and well-being of our kids and communities.
