“The proposed Strengthening Transparency in Regulatory Science rule risks not just erosion of public trust in the EPA’s important work, but also progress on improving the health and wellbeing of our communities and our nation.”

Joint Letter to EPA Acting Administrator Andrew Wheeler

On August 15, AFGE 704 joined leaders from dozens of organizations in co-signing a letter to EPA Acting Administrator Wheeler urging him to withdraw former EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt’s proposed “Strengthening Transparency in Regulatory Science” rule.

They called it a “flawed proposal that would politicize science and prevent the agency from fulfilling its mission.”
