Governor Cuomo says, "Scott Pruitt was as reckless toward the planet as he was toward his own position in government. He oversaw an historic attack on our environment, tried to rollback decades of progress and handed over the reins to big oil and gas.
"The Senate Democrats should stand united against any appointment who intends to continue Pruitt's disastrous legacy. The EPA should be working with New York—and not against us—to address climate change, protect our water resources and ensure the health of our residents. With Pruitt's long-overdue resignation, I say good riddance."
