The Pruitt Problem
“The thing that worries me is that the story of Pruitt is a story that we can all understand; so, it becomes a big thing we can talk about. What the EPA is doing really deserves the discussion. We need to understand what’s happening in all these agencies. What is the impact of this deregulation—this dismantling?
