Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Scott Pruitt speaks to employees of the EPA in Washington on Feb. 21. Pruitt’s schedule shows he met with Dow Chemical CEO Andrew Liveris for about a half-hour on March 9 during a conference held at a Houston hotel. Twenty days later Pruitt announced his decision to deny a petition to ban Dow’s chlorpyrifos pesticide from being sprayed on food, despite a review by his agency’s own scientists that concluded ingesting even minuscule amounts of the chemical can interfere with the brain development of fetuses and infants. EPA released a copy of Pruitt’s March meeting schedule earlier this month following several Freedom of Information Act requests. (Associated Press file photo)
