Congressman Dan Kildee on Scott Pruitt’s Unethical Use of the Safe Drinking Water Act

April 3, 2018
Press Release

Congressman Dan Kildee (MI-05) released a statement today following reports that EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt is using a provision of the Safe Drinking Water Act to give his top political aides huge taxpayer-funded raises:

“The intent of the Safe Drinking Water Act is to ensure clean drinking water for communities across America, not give huge pay raises to political appointees in the Trump Administration. EPA Administrator Pruitt’s actions are shameful and an insult to the people of my hometown of Flint. Rather than hiring scientists, engineers and experts to work to solve drinking water contamination issues, Scott Pruitt is using public money to instead give huge pay raises to his political friends. Sadly, this is just one more example that highlights the corrupt intent of the Trump Administration, one that is more worried about pay raises for Washington political appointees rather than ensuring clean drinking water for American citizens.”
