Scott Pruitt is headed to the EPA. The Senate confirmed Pruitt to head the agency on a vote of 52-46.  Republicans argued that Pruitt will bring some balance to the EPA after years of over-regulation by the Obama administration.  

Democrats challenged Pruitt's views on climate change and accused him of being too close to oil and gas interests. Pruitt sued the EPA numerous times as attorney general of Oklahoma.
