5 years after an explosion of a fertilizer plant in West, Texas killed 15 and injured 150, and just 2 days after another chemical plant explosion in Pasadena, Texas injured 22, criminal Scott Pruitt’s EPA administration has decided to roll back safety rule changes put in place as a result of the West Explosion.
West, Texas Mayor Tommy Muska told the Austin American-Statesman, “With all due respect to Scott Pruitt, he’s never lost 15 firefighter friends. I’m as pro-business as anyone, but some things are way, way, way more important than too much regulation, and that includes the safety of these chemical plants.”
Scott Pruitt and Donald Trump do not care. They don’t care how many people are killed or injured in industrial accidents. As long as they can cut regulations, especially anything done during the Obama administration, they are happy. And their donors are happy.
