US Senate has confirmed Scott Pruitt to head the Environmental Protection
Agency, an agency Republicans desperately want to rein in after what
they charge was eight years of dangerous activism under the Obama
administration that hurt businesses, jobs and the economy. 

 
The CNN reported the Mr Pruitt
might just the person to do it. 
 
As Oklahoma attorney general he sued
the agency many times in that pursuit and has vowed to curb the EPA’s
regulatory reach once in office. 
 
The largely party line vote was 52-46. 
 
Democratic
senators Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota and Joe Manchin of West
Virginia, who both represent energy producing states, voted for Pruitt.
Moderate Republican Susan Collins of Maine voted against him.
