WASHINGTON –U.S. Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) released the following statement after Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt was confirmed as Administrator of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA):

“Texans rightfully had no faith in the Obama Administration’s EPA, which perpetually overstepped their authority and targeted job creators. Scott Pruitt will bring a commonsense approach by helping to rein in the past Administration’s overreach and ensuring we’re good stewards of the environment without stifling jobs.”
