• U.S. Chamber Comments on EPA Supplemental Proposal on Strengthening Transparency in Regulatory Science

May 18, 2020

Dear Ms. Hawkins: The U.S. Chamber of Commerce appreciates the opportunity to submit these comments to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regarding its supplemental notice of proposed rulemaking (SNPRM) on Strengthening Transparency in Regulatory Science.

As detailed in comments on the original proposed rulemaking in 2018, the Chamber strongly supports EPA’s effort to build greater transparency into the regulatory decision-making process. The underlying intent of these reforms is grounded in the broadly agreed upon principle that citizens should have a right to the data and information that are used in the development of public policy.
