PA GOP Chairman Gleason, National Committeeman Asher Urge Senator Bob Casey to Support Truitt for EPA Administrator

HARRISBURG - Republican Party of Pennsylvania Chairman Rob Gleason and Pennsylvania Republican National Committeeman Bob Asher released the following statement calling on Senator Bob Casey to support Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt as Administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

'President-elect Donald Trump's selection of Scott Pruitt as EPA Administrator is great news for our environment and our energy jobs,' Gleason said. 'Over the past eight years, the Obama Administration has used the EPA as a means of imposing job-killing regulations on our country. I call on Senator Bob Casey to support Scott Pruitt's nomination so he can lead our nation into a new era of conservation and job creation.'

'Scott Pruitt will play a key role in putting an end to overregulation in our government. At such a critical time in our nation's history, Scott Pruitt is the right person to lead the EPA and help Make America Great Again. It's time for Senator Casey to listen to the voters and support Scott Pruitt,' Asher said.
