Watchdog Group Says EPA Chief’s Soundproof Booth Violated Law

Apr 16, 2018

A watchdog group says the EPA violated the law when it approved a $43,000 soundproof phone booth for Scott Pruitt. The Government Accountability Office says it violated the Financial Services and General Government Appropriations Act. The act prohibits an agency from giving more than $5,000 in federal funds to change the office of a presidential appointee. Pruitt has been under fire from Republican and Democratic lawmakers recently for expensive travel and other expenses.
