EPA reform measures face White House opposition
Some Republicans are pushing for passage of two bills to change how the EPA uses scientific evidence to craft regulation. One bill, the Secret Science Reform Act, would prohibit the EPA from "proposing, finalizing or disseminating regulations or assessments based upon science that is not transparent or reproducible." It would compel the agency to release all scientific and technical information used in its assessments. Another bill, the Science Advisory Board Reform Act, would change the membership and procedures of the agency's Science Advisory Board.
