Official Title

To require the Secretary of Health and Human Services, in consultation with the Administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency, to conduct a study on the public health and environmental impacts of the production, transportation, storage, and use of petroleum coke, and for other purposes.

Summary

Petroleum Coke Transparency and Public Health Study Act - Requires the Secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS) to transmit to Congress, within 90 days after enactment of this Act, the results of a study regarding the public health and environmental impacts of the production, transportation, storage, and use of petroleum coke. Requires the Secretary to compile and make publicly available the results of all federally conducted research related to such impacts.
    Makes sense. However, this bill doesn't say what we know about this issue. It doesn't say if any of it is in a bill now, and hence the need now. Just some clarity please.
