Another Gift To Industry Lobbyists Puts Us At Risk
EPA's announcement of a new policy constraining the agency's use of life-saving science is a gift to industry lobbyists and will cause real harm to American families.
The proposal compels EPA to subject high quality research to extreme, unnecessary, and untenable levels of disclosure — but has loopholes for EPA to exclude industry from having to disclose details of its studies. Its ambiguous wording is designed to favor the fossil fuel and chemical industries, chipping away at EPA's ability to protect us from toxic pollution and chemicals."
Political appointees at EPA are seeking to obstruct the agency's ability to determine which chemicals and pollutants cause cancer, heart disease, and more. We can't let this stand. Speak out against this dangerous proposal today!

SUBJECT: Walk back your latest dangerous attack on strong science
Dear Acting Administrator Wheeler,
I'm writing today gravely concerned about your recent proposal to restrict EPA's ability to use life-saving science.
This proposal doesn't roll back red tape. Instead, it binds the process of legitimate scientific inquiry with it. It will obstruct EPA's ability to use highly reliable scientific information, including data used to determine whether chemicals and pollutants cause cancer, heart disease, and other health problems.
This proposal will undermine EPA's ability to safeguard the health and well-being of American families. Please abandon this attack on strong science. America's communities are counting on an EPA that uses the best and latest science to protect us.
