senate Bill S. 3312

Should EPA Rulemaking be Suspended Until Scott Pruitt is Fully Investigated?

Argument in favor

Former EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt’s abuses of his office were numerous and egregious. By tying EPA rulemaking to the conclusion of the EPA IG’s investigations, this bill ensures that the pressure stays on for the EPA IG to continue its investigations into Pruitt’s misconduct.

DEFINITELY! Pruitt has decimated the EPA with turning back the clock to before the mid-1970’s when the EPA was created. In all the years since then, the EPA had programs in place that have minimized car pollution, that controlled manufacturing companies with responsible hazardous material disposal, that gave our wildlife the protection they needed, etc. In a few short months Pruitt, in line with #45’s favoritism to corporations and manufacturing companies, has removed restrictions and programs enabling the growth of pollution, contaminating water by creating an increase of toxic levels and placing wildlife at risk. Pruitt and his second-in-command, now current EPA Director, Wheeler, have a lot to answer for including repayment of wasteful use of taxpayer dollars.

Corruption is at an all time high in our government. We are being run by corporations though kickbacks to politicians and policy advisors. EPA is to protect the environment, the consumer protection bureau is to protect consumers. Positions in our government are being bought and sold by the corrupt.

Argument opposed

None of the cases against Pruitt involve his policymaking while in office, and therefore it is unnecessary to hold up EPA’s rulemaking while the EPA IG continues its investigations. The policies he put in place should remain in effect despite the ethics investations into his conduct.

You can’t change political protocol simply because your side lost. Did we set aside all of AG Holder’s programs when he opted not to cooperate in the investigation into the Fast and Furious program?

Was Mr. Pruitt the only person working at the EPA? So anything and everything must halt? More BS “resist” obstructionism from the so called Democrats. Keep it up. It strengthens our resolve for the mid terms. MAGA.

    Absolutely! Any rules that this corrupt low-life made while EPA administrator should be suspended until all corruption allegations made against him have been thoroughly investigated. A man who uses his government position to enrich himself should not be making any rules or regulations or repealing any past rules or regulations.

    Yes! And, ALL rules and appointments and laws instituted since 45’s Russia/assisted regime started need to be put on hold until the FREE and FAIR MUELLER INVESTIGATION is done. All those actions were probably taken by a FAKE PRESIDENT and should be considered illegal and void.

    The EPA’s recent actions have been shameful and have been in the complete opposite direction of what all scientific research says we need to be heading in. The threats to our environment need to be taken serious.

    Please support this proposal. It makes a great deal of sense to wait until Scott Pruitt is fully investigated before implementing anything he proposed.. Thank you!

    The entire administration needs to be shut down until investigations are complete, but this is a start.

    Unfortunately given his dubious and often conflicted record as head of the EPA it is necessary to investigate his term in office. This is why the Senate had no business approving such a poor cabinet member for this role in the first place. It’s time the Senate took responsibility for the malfeasance of this individual while in office.

    Absolutely. From day 1, Pruitt was put in charge of instilling policies that are the exact opposite to what EPA's lawful mandate should be-- protection of our environment, air, and water. A total sell-off to the oil and other polluting businesses.

    If this guy is found of wrongdoing then we will have to objectively look at what he has done while in this position.
