WASHINGTON – House Small Business Committee Chairman Steve Chabot (R-OH) made the following statement after the U.S. Senate confirmed Scott Pruitt as the new administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

“From WOTUS to the CO2 rules, our Committee has been spotlighting the EPA's regulatory rampage against American small businesses for years,” said Chairman Chabot.  “I am confident that Mr. Pruitt is the right man to rein in this out-of-control agency and provide small businesses with much-needed relief from their costly, burdensome regulations.”
