Washington, D.C. (December 8, 2016) – The National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB), America’s leading small business advocate, issued the following statement from NFIB President and CEO Juanita Duggan regarding the nomination of Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt by President-elect Donald J. Trump:

“Attorney General Pruitt is an excellent choice who will bring some sense to the Environmental Protection Agency. In Oklahoma, he stood with small businesses to oppose federal regulations that would concentrate power in Washington and slow economic growth.

“Under President Obama, the EPA tried to go around Congress to expand its regulatory power. NFIB is leading legal challenges against the Clean Power Plan and Waters of the United States rules, both of which are currently under injunction because of bureaucratic overreach. Pruitt filed suits against these same rules. Small business should be able to count on him to keep the EPA within its statutory boundaries.”
