Scott Segal, director of the Electric Reliability Coordinating Council, offered the following remarks on the Pruitt confirmation. ERCC is a group of power generating companies working on responsible energy and environmental policy:
Our members are glad to welcome a new leader to EPA. The Agency has a mission of tremendous importance to human health and the environment and Scott Pruitt's dedication to the rule of law will be of material assistance to achieving these regulatory objectives. Environmental advocacy can be rough and tumble, but now is the time to set aside preconceived notions and allow Mr. Pruitt and his team the space needed to get underway. Responsible regulatory reform can make our shared environmental objectives all easier to achieve."
