Washington, D.C. – Today, Congresswoman Elise Stefanik (R-NY-21) issued the following statement:

“It is time for new leadership at the EPA,” said Congresswoman Stefanik. “There have been too many ethical lapses under Administrator Pruitt’s watch and this decision is in the best interests of the agency and our country. I look forward to working with our next EPA Administrator to protect the environmental interests of our district, which is the proud home of the Adirondacks.”

Congresswoman Stefanik was one of the first Republicans to publicly call on Administrator Pruitt to resign in April of this year.
