WASHINGTON, DC (April 22, 2018) – Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator Scott Pruitt said Sunday he plans to increase transparency in how the department uses scientific analysis to create rules and regulations.
Pruitt told radio host John Catsimatidis that he’s found much of the research used to create EPA rules comes from third parties.
“One of the things that we’re changing here soon is to say, look, if third parties are used as the basis of rulemaking as we adopt rules, it’s important for the American people to have transparency on the data that was reviewed,” Pruitt said in an interview broadcast Sunday.
