Ex-EPA chief Pruitt registers as energy lobbyist in Indiana

The Associated Press - April 20, 2019 9:08 am

WASHINGTON (AP) – Former EPA chief Scott Pruitt has registered as an energy lobbyist in Indiana as fossil fuels interests there are contending against the proposed closure of several coal-fired power plants.
A lobbying disclosure report for Pruitt filed Thursday provides little insight into what he’s doing in Indiana, but several clues point to work on behalf of the coal industry. Pruitt’s sole client is listed as RailPoint Solutions LLC, a Delaware corporation created in January. RailPoint’s manager is listed as Heather Tryon, which is also the name of the chief financial officer of Sunrise Coal, a Terre Haute-based mining company.
Pruitt did not respond to messages seeking comment. Pruitt resigned from the EPA last year amid a wave of ethics scandals, including living in a bargain-priced Capitol Hill condo tied to an energy lobbyist.
