EPA Chief Needs 24-Hour Security after Shutting Down Inefficient and Corrupt Programs
US: Scott Pruitt, the Administrator of the EPA, sued the federal agency fourteen times when he was the Attorney General of Oklahoma. He is currently being guarded round the clock because of of threats on his life. Since taking over the EPA, he has saved an estimated $30 billion by cutting waste and fraud. For example, he replaced EPA advisory panels with independent experts instead of people who depend on the EPA for grant money. Pruitt rescinded the EPA’s regulations called ‘Waters of the United States’ that were merely a scheme for federal zoning and confiscation of private land. -GEG.
