Washington, D.C. – Following EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt’s proposal to reform EPA cost-benefit analysis, the League of Conservation Voters released the following statement from Vice President of Government Affairs Sara Chieffo:

“Scott Pruitt has shown us once again that he doesn’t care about the costs of pollution to human health. His claim that benefits have been inflated in EPA regulatory decision making is simply not borne out by the facts and in today’s far-reaching announcement, he is doing nothing short of cooking the books so that polluters always win, and people always lose.”
