Something almost unheard-of. A Republican congressman having a noncontentious, in fact very pleasant interaction with the head of the EPA.

Rep. Greg Walden (R-Hood River), recently met with EPA Administrator Pruitt in Congressman Walden's Washington, D.C. office. The two discussed environmental and economic issues important to both the nation and the people of the State of Oregon.? ?“I appreciated the opportunity to meet with Congressman Walden today and discuss the issues important to our nation and to the people of Oregon,” said Administrator Pruitt. “The people of Oregon and their elected representatives deserve an EPA that is focused on the basics of protecting the environment, engaging with state and local partners, and ensuring sensible regulations for economic growth.”??“Administrator Pruitt and I had a productive conversation today about the wide-ranging issues facing Oregonians,” said Congressman Walden. The discussion included the fact that there is a need to ensure water quality standards without bankrupting rural communities. They agreed that they can protect the clean air and water we enjoy in Oregon, without further burdening jobs and economic growth in our rural communities. I look forward to working with Administrator Pruitt and his team at the EPA to achieve these goals for Oregonians,” Congressman Walden added.?
