This is the same EPA that was whining 4 days ago about H.R. 1430 "The Honest Act" stating it would compromise the personal data of their sources if they reveal the sources of their "science" behind their regulations. I wish I was in that room at the time to remind the Dems that it was the EPA who was compromising farmers and ranchers.The Honest Act should be of interest to everyone. Here is the CRS summary of the bill:
I wish one of the Reps. would have used that little reminder to throw back in their face right there on T.V. during the debate of H.R. 1430
This bill amends the Environmental Research, Development, and Demonstration Authorization Act of 1978 to prohibit the Environmental Protection Agency from proposing, finalizing, or disseminating a covered action unless all scientific and technical information relied on to support such action is the best available science, specifically identified, and publicly available in a manner sufficient for independent analysis and substantial reproduction of research results. A covered action includes a risk, exposure, or hazard assessment, criteria document, standard, limitation, regulation, regulatory impact analysis, or guidance. Personally identifiable information, trade secrets, or commercial or financial information obtained from a person and privileged or confidential must be redacted prior to public availability.H.R. 1430 passed the House on 3/29 and is now pending in the Senate.
