WASHINGTON Dec 8 U.S. President-elect Donald
Trump will nominate Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt, a
critic of federal environmental regulation, to lead the
Environmental Protection Agency, his transition team said in a
statement on Thursday.
"For too long, the Environmental Protection Agency has spent
taxpayer dollars on an out-of-control anti-energy agenda that
has destroyed millions of jobs, while also undermining our
incredible farmers and many other businesses and industries at
every turn," Trump was quoted as saying in the statement.
