Climate Change Denier and Newly Appointed Head of EPA, Scott Pruitt, (Oklahoma AG) May Face Oil Drilling Challenges in Trump Administration

OKLAHOMA CITY – The Oklahoma Democratic Party applauds President Obama’s decisive action to protect the Arctic and Atlantic Ocean from an anti-environment administration ready to roll back efforts made to protect our water, air, and land. Obama used the 1953 Outer Continental Shelf Lands Act to withdraw lands from future leasing and drilling, indefinitely. Removing the lands from future use challenges newly appointed energy friendly EPA Head and Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt from taking advantage of his new position to enact his own extreme anti-climate and anti-environment agendas.


The mission of the Oklahoma Democratic Party is to represent working people in Oklahoma and the best way to accomplish that is to elect Democrats to all areas of government. Oklahoma Democrats are progressive and sensible. We are optimistic about the future, and we are determined to see Oklahoma’s traditional values upheld.
