Is the fox in charge of the henhouse at the EPA?

Hosted by

During his confirmation hearing, President Trump's new EPA administrator was asked if the agency had any regulation he could support. He couldn't name one.  Now, years of emails have been released showing Scott Pruitt's cozy relationship with fossil fuel companies while he was Oklahoma's attorney general.

Pruitt has plans to roll back rules designed to curtail climate change, and environmentalists predict increased pollution of air and water. We hear what might be next in the latest battle between public health and the claim that excess regulation kills jobs and prevents economic growth.
