"Pruitt Back On The Hill For Another Round"

"Senators will have their first chance to question EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt since he has been beset by allegations of excessive spending and misuse of his Cabinet-level office.

On Wednesday, he will appear before the Senate Interior, Environment and Related Agencies Appropriations Subcommittee. The hearing is meant to focus on President Trump's fiscal 2019 budget plan for the agency but could be consumed by queries related to Pruitt's pricey travel and expansive security.

Six out of the seven Democrats who sit on the subcommittee have already signed onto a resolution calling on Pruitt to resign from EPA. Ranking member Tom Udall (D-N.M.) is the measure's lead sponsor."
