On this week’s ag media call, Iowa Senator Chuck Grassley addressed the resignation of Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator Scott Pruitt. Grassley released a statement after the resignation, but the Senator extrapolated more on the topic.
Senator Grassley says that Pruitt did the President a “disservice” using small refiner waivers.
Grassley says he will work with acting administrator Andrew Wheeler on upholding the Renewable Fuels Standard (RFS).
Could Wheeler be a candidate to take the job permanently? Grassley says the President should let things “cool down” before going forward with a new appointee.
