Collins is one of the most centrist Republicans in the Senate, having broken with her party numerous times to support environmental regulations and legislation.
Last year Pruitt said scientists continue to disagree whether climate change is real, but last month broke with Trump, who said it's a hoax invented by the Obama administration.
