U.S. Chamber's Global Energy Institute Comments on EPA Science Policy Rule

Press Release
April 25, 2018

In response to a proposed EPA rule regarding the use of science in the regulatory process, Dan Byers, vice president of policy at the U.S. Chamber's Global Energy Institute, issued the following statement:

“The American people should have access to the data the government uses to justify its regulations. It’s not enough for the government to say ‘trust us.’ For that reason, we applaud EPA’s policy reforms to ensure that the studies and data used to formulate and justify rulemakings are clearly identified and available for review—a concept that shouldn’t be controversial. These changes will provide a critical safeguard to ensure that the data EPA is using is scientifically sound, unbiased, and reliable, which will improve the integrity of the rulemaking process and increase confidence and support for EPA’s actions. We look forward to reviewing the new policy in detail.”
