U.S. Senator Ben Sasse issued the following statement after his meeting with President-Elect Trump's nominee for the EPA, Scott Pruitt. 

"I had a productive meeting with Mr. Pruitt who will be a friend of Nebraska agriculture and a stalwart champion of Federalism and the rule of law. I thanked Mr. Pruitt for his fight against the EPA's unconstitutional Waters of the United States rule and was encouraged by his forceful defense of lawmaking by the people’s representatives in Congress."
