The National Association of Landscape Professionals (NALP) supports the Senate's confirmation of Scott Pruitt as the new administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency. According to NALP, his track record of opposing regulation that hinders business growth will benefit the landscape industry substantially by cutting unnecessary and costly regulations.


The National Association of Landscape Professionals fully supports the Senate confirmation of Scott Pruitt as the new head of the Environmental Protection Agency. Pruitt, who as Oklahoma's attorney general spent years suing the EPA over its efforts to regulate various forms of pollution, was confirmed Friday as the agency's next administrator.

"The professional landscape community applauds today's Senate confirmation of Scott Pruitt as our nation's top environmental executive. We greatly appreciate Administrator Pruitt's stated mission of ensuring that the Environmental Protection Agency does not unduly burden businesses with costly and unnecessary regulations," said Sabeena Hickman, NALP CEO. "We look forward to working with administrator Pruitt and others at the EPA in pursuit of a common sense regulatory approach that protects the environment and at the same time allows landscape professionals to provide their services without unneeded interference."

Pruitt cleared the Senate by a vote of 52-46, winning support from two Democrats, Joe Manchin of West Virginia and Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota. Only one Republican, Susan Collins of Maine, voted against him, saying he had "fundamentally different" views than she about the EPA's role.
