What Scott Pruitt as EPA chief would mean for California

Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt helped coordinate an ongoing lawsuit of 28 states against the Environmental Protection Agency’s carbon emissions rules. He’s said repeatedly that states themselves should regulate local industries like oil and gas, and that the EPA was wrong to step on those state powers. Now Donald Trump has nominated him as the new head of the EPA.
