U.S. Environmental Protection Agency administrator Scott Pruitt paid a quiet visit to Florida last week, but avoided the biggest environmental issues in the state.
Pruitt heard from more than just farmers. In a roundtable discussion at the May Nursery, Pruitt met with representatives of the Florida Chamber of Commerce, Florida Electric Cooperatives Association, and the Manufacturers Association of Florida, in addition to the Florida Farm Bureau. After the roundtable he spoke to 150 people at the nursery’s loading dock.
No one from any of Florida’s environmental groups was in attendance.
