Administrator Pruitt’s “Back-to-Basics Agenda” reflects his efforts to refocus EPA on its intended mission, return power to the states and create an environment where jobs can grow. The agenda focuses on the three E’s:
- Environment: Protecting the environment
- Economy: Sensible regulations that allow economic growth
- Engagement: Engaging with state and local partners.
Administrator Pruitt kicked off his “Back to Basics Agenda” on April 13 at the Harvey Mine in Sycamore, Pennsylvania. He spoke with coal miners about the president’s recent Energy Independence Executive Order, which directs EPA and other federal agencies to review the Clean Power Plan and revise regulatory barriers that impede energy independence, including unnecessary burdens on coal miners and coal-fired electric utilities.
