Senator Corey Booker follows-up on Mr. Pruitt's 'state industry' advocacy, asks how Mr. Pruitt could be acting on behalf of state interests in challenging EPA clean air rules when letter of intent on the matter was written by single stakeholder, Devon Energy, while input from no other parties was considered before challenge. Sen Booker remarks that more than 1 in 10 children in OK have asthma, deemed 'a crisis', and asks Mr. Pruitt why the latter never filed a case against polluters for OK children. Mr. Pruitt argues that the health/inability of OK children to breathe does not constitute 'standing'; Sen Booker asks Pruitt how that statement can be reconciled with Devon Energy's specific interests constituting 'standing' to sue EPA on air pollution rules. Sen Booker enters into the public record the 14 cases Pruitt brought against the EPA, all of which concern clean air rules challenged by co-party energy stakeholders that have made contributions to Mr. Pruitts campaign/affiliated PACs close
