FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Congressman Jim Bridenstine invited Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt to testify on the impact Obama Administration regulations are having on the state of Oklahoma. The hearing topic is “The Impact of EPA’s Clean Power Plan on States.”
The Congressman is chairing a hearing of the Environment Subcommittee of the U.S. House Committee on Science, Space, and Technology on Thursday at 9:30 AM (Eastern Time). Pruitt will be the lead witness. Also testifying will be Brianne Gorod, Chief Counsel, Constitutional Accountability Center, and Charles McConnell, Executive Director, Energy and Environment Initiative, Rice University.
Bridenstine said, “I am pleased to have Attorney General Scott Pruitt testify. He has been an outspoken advocate for states’ rights against this egregiously overreaching Administration. The EPA’s Clean Power Plan will have a dramatic, negative impact on our state of Oklahoma and the entire nation – all for very little benefit.”
Pruitt commented, “Both the democratic process and the constitution have been ignored in the EPA’s effort to implement the Administration’s Clean Power Plan by rule.”
