Change is a-coming at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. And not just in a new Administrator. While searching for background information on the President’s nominee, Scott Pruitt, I found this:
Additionally the EPA should steer clear of addressing local or regional challenges, Loris said. That means programs such as the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative should be cut, he said. In this newly limited role, the EPA’s funding could be significantly reduced, he said.
That’s not necessarily Scott Pruitt’s view, of course. If it is, that’s a departure from not only the Obama Administration, but the second Bush Administration, which declared the Great Lakes a national treasure.
