Carson City, NV – Today, Nevada Attorney General Adam Paul Laxalt issued the following statement:

    “I applaud the appointment of my colleague in Oklahoma, Attorney General Scott Pruitt, to lead the Environmental Protection Agency. I am confident that AG Pruitt will strike the right balance between protecting the environment and not using regulations to stifle job growth and energy exploration in the U.S. He is a tireless public servant who will continue to serve our country well and be an asset to the President-Elect’s Administration. I look forward to working with AG Pruitt and the incoming Administration on issues affecting Nevadans, including Waters of the U.S., ozone standards and regulations for competitive racing vehicles.”
