Sen. Chuck Grassley on Tuesday said Environmental Protection Agency Chief Scott Pruitt had better get in line with the president's ethanol policy or risk losing the support of the Iowa Republican, The Hill reports.
Grassley is unhappy that Pruitt's EPA has been issuing hardship waivers from the federal ethanol mandate to fuel refineries owned by large oil companies, despite the fact that the refineries themselves are small, The Hill reports.
Grassley has asked the EPA to cease issuing the Renewable Fuel Standards (RFS) waivers to the refineries.
"Well, they better, or I'm going to be calling for Pruitt to resign, because I'm done playing around with this," Grassley said on a call, The Hill reports.
"Trump was elected with an agenda, Pruitt was not elected, and it's Pruitt's job to carry out the Trump agenda," The Hill quoted Grassley.
Grassley wasn't finished there.
Most people calling for Pruitt to resign are doing over the myriad federal investigations into his decadent spending and extravagant travel habits.
