EPA Secretary Scott Pruitt has reportedly admitted that the decisions he made regarding spending were not ethical and should concern everyone.
Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator Scott Pruitt took an early conciliatory tone during a Wednesday Senate hearing in response to questions about his ethical and spending scandals.
Given time by Senate Appropriations Committee subpanel Chairwoman Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) to respond to criticisms, Pruitt conceded that some of the controversial decisions were not handled properly.
"Some of the areas of criticism are frankly areas where processes at the agency were not properly instituted to prevent certain abuses from happening," Pruitt said.
"There have been decisions over the last 16 months or so that, as I look back on those decisions, I would not make the same decisions again," he continued.
