Sen Edward Markey (MA) quotes OK AG Scott Pruitt's stated position indicating that the states, not the EPA, should have regulatory primacy in setting their own environmental standards. Sen Markey suggests this 'Federalism' or 'States Rights' activism is the motivation Mr. Pruitt has advanced behind his 14 suits filed as OK AG w/oil and gas stakeholders against the EPA challenging clean air standards. Sen Markey asks if Mr. Pruitt does indeed hold that states' rights are the correct imperative re environmental regulation, why then has Mr. Pruitt NOT vowed to uphold the statutory right of MA and CA to set their own vehicle emission & greenhouse gas standards, which previous EPA administrations have done in the form of waivers & authorizations renewed annually. Sen Markey states that Mr. Pruitt only values states' rights when those are in line with oil & gas stakeholder interests, but not when states' interests re environmental regulation are rooted in public health & clean tech. close
