Benton, Ericksen part of Trump’s political ‘beachhead’ takeover team at EPA – Seattle PI

If ever there were worse choices for EPA, it’s hard to imagine it. Better put on your steel underwear. This is going to get really ugly quickly. These two are as anti-environment as you can get. They don’t respect science, they don’t respect our hard fought support of the environment, they are, in fact, very much, against everything that is worth saving. It will be interesting to see what the Tribes reaction to these two will be, and what, if anything they can do with these two.

The Trump administration’s political “beachhead team” taking over at the U.S. Environmental Protection Administration is led in part by two pro-development, pro-oil politicians from Washington, State Sen. Doug Ericksen and ex-Sen. Don Benton, E & E News reported Monday.
