Tribal sovereignty foe in charge of nation's environmental agenda
February 22, 2017
A Republican who has battled tribes on sovereignty and other issues is now in charge of the Environmental Protection Agency.
Scott Pruitt, Oklahoma's former attorney general, was sworn in as Administrator of the EPA on Friday afternoon. He was cleared for the post earlier in the day by the Senate in a party-line vote of 52 to 47. Just one Democrat supported his nomination.
