Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) issued the following statement today regarding President-elect Donald Trump’s intention to nominate Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt for administrator of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA):

“The next EPA administrator should be someone who understands the important balance between protecting our air, water and environment without needlessly hurting workers with excessive regulations. Attorney General Pruitt ‎is the right choice to bring a much-needed dose of common sense to a department where overzealous, out-of-touch regulators have been allowed to operate seemingly unchecked. I look forward to working with him on the many important environmental issues facing Florida.”
