LATEST SENATOR TESTER
U.S. Senator Jon Tester today stood up for Montana’s clean air and clean water by opposing EPA Administrator nominee Scott Pruitt.
Tester spoke on the Senate floor prior to the vote and expressed his opposition to Pruitt because of the nominee’s history of not holding corporations accountable and failing to protect clean air and water.
“Mr. Pruitt has consistently sided with big polluters over local businesses and local families,” Tester said. “I am not convinced that Mr. Pruitt understands the critical role that clean air and clean water play in our agriculture and outdoor economies. In my conversation with him, I received no assurances that he will be a champion for Montana family farmers and ranchers and the folks who love to hike, hunt, and fish in Big Sky Country. Mr. Pruitt has endorsed policies that will put Montana jobs at-risk, and put our outdoor heritage on the ropes.”
