Congressional Democrats ramp up bid to oust Pruitt

By Timothy Cama, The Hill.

Senate Democrats are escalating their efforts to oust Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Adminstrator Scott Pruitt with a formal resolution calling on him to resign or be fired.

Democrats said Wednesday that between his aggressive deregulatory agenda and numerous scandals in recent weeks, Pruitt has no place at the EPA.

The senators plan to introduce in the coming days a “sense of the Senate” resolution calling for Pruitt to be removed.
