Sen Merkley (OR) asks OK AG Pruitt whether it is true that Mr. Pruitt brought a case against the EPA challenging methane standards in 2011, and whether the letter of intent Mr. Pruitt submitted on behalf of OK constituents was in fact drafted by Devon Energy. Mr. Pruitt acknowledges that the letter in question was drafted by Devon Energy and that no other parties, ie public constituents, informed the letter that presaged the suit filed by Pruitt against the EPA re methane. Sen Merkley reminds Mr. Pruitt that a state AG office is a 'public office', held by persons expected to serve 'the public'. Sen Merkley asks Mr. Pruitt to acknowledge that Mr. Pruitt used the OK AG office as a direct extension of an oil company, and leveraged his authorities to advance the interests of private oil companies over the health of OK people. Pruitt argues that he acted on behalf of all OK citizens in suing the EPA to allow higher methane levels in outdoor air on behalf of Devon Energy. close
