Strengthening Transparency in Regulatory Science?
Professor Cromar Comments on the EPA's Proposed Rule
Professor Kevin Cromar, along with three other individual members of the Utah Air Quality Board, recently submitted comments to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) on its proposed rule, "Strengthening Transparency in Regulatory Science" 83 Fed. Reg. 18,768.
We strongly oppose the proposal to grant the EPA administrator with authority to consider "on a case-by-case basis" which studies will be used to inform significant regulatory decisions. Picking and choosing which studies to use as the basis of agency actions is antithetical to both sound scientific analysis and evidence-based rulemaking.
