Eduardo Munoz Alvarez/AFP/Getty Images President-elect Donald Trump intends to nominate Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt to head the Environmental Protection Agency, announcing his decision in a statement Thursday. As attorney general, Pruitt has made no secret of his disdain for the EPA. His official biography calls him "a leading advocate against the EPA's activist agenda." He has repeatedly challenged the agency's rules in court, and he has even sued the EPA for an allegedly cozy "sue and settle" relationship with environmentalists. One profile noted that Pruitt would sue the federal government "every chance he can get." Trump's Pick To Lead The EPA Has A History Of Battling The EPA Trump's Pick To Lead The EPA Has A History Of Battling The EPA Transcript Pruitt, who met with Trump Thursday morning at Trump Tower in New York, has been an ardent defender of fossil fuels and the coal industry.

In that role, he set up a "Federalism Unit" aimed at ferreting out and combating what he viewed as federal overreach. Conservative columnist George F.

In that statement, Trump said the EPA has pursued "an out-of-control anti-energy agenda that has destroyed millions of jobs," and that Pruitt "will reverse this trend and restore the EPA's essential mission of keeping our air and our water clean and safe." Pruitt grew up in Lexington, Ky., and won a baseball scholarship to the University of Kentucky. He earned his bachelor's degree in communications and political science at Georgetown College and then a law degree from the University of Tulsa College of Law. He worked in private practice as a lawyer and co-owned a Minor League Baseball team called the Oklahoma City RedHawks.
