As Attorney General of Alabama, I have never hesitated to stand up to the EPA before when it was wrong.
Every day, the hard-working men and women of Alabama's Department of Environmental Management are on the ground, protecting Alabama's rivers and lakes in a way that is beneficial to all. EPA should support them in that work, not make it more difficult.
