Senator Cantwell Statement on Resignation of EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt

Seattle, WA – Today, U.S. Senator Maria Cantwell (D-WA) released the following statement on the resignation of Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator Scott Pruitt:

“Environmental stewardship is not a part-time job – it requires constant vigilance. The fact that EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt actively did the opposite makes his resignation today a great day for salmon, clean air, and Mother Earth.
