Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Scott Pruitt has been in his new role for just over 80 days.

He spoke with The Daily Signal about his objectives for the first year, which he says include “getting back to basics.” Pruitt says the agency needs to do a much better job of respecting individual states and the rule of law, and promoting policies that are pro-jobs, pro-growth, and pro-environment.

He also explains why President Barack Obama was not the environmental savior some suggest, and why he calls the Paris Agreement an “America Last” policy.
