Oklahoma Farm Bureau President Tom Buchanan released the following statement following Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt’s appointment as administrator of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
“Oklahoma Farm Bureau congratulates Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt on being named administrator of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency under the Donald Trump administration.
“Pruitt’s selection as EPA administrator is a win for farmers and ranchers across the country. As Oklahoma attorney general, Pruitt has been a staunch advocate of agriculture and Oklahoma Farm Bureau. He continuously has defended farmers and ranchers against the EPA and has led the charge in suing the agency over its burdensome regulations such as the Waters of the United States rule and the Clean Power Plan.
“We are confident Pruitt will restore the EPA to its constitutional role, allowing farmers and ranchers to freely produce the safest, most abundant and most affordable food supply in the world.”
