Senate confirms Scott Pruitt as EPA chief despite concerns

Daniel Farber interviewed by KTVU Fox 2 News, Feb. 17, 2017

“Some of those lawsuits are still out there so he’s going to be in the position of supposedly leading the agency in defending or responding to lawsuits he himself was involved in,” Farber said. Farber says as head of the EPA, Pruitt won’t be able to change the laws. “In the area of regulation, he’s very much subject to oversight by the courts,” Farber said, noting there are other ways, however, that Pruitt can scale back the EPA’s reach.
