The "Honest" Act passed the House of Representatives yesterday. On the surface, this bill seems reasonable: make sure the EPA uses only "publicly available" science in making regulations. However, much of science is published in journals, which are behind paywalls. In addition, the EPA does not have rights to publish all relevant science. At the same time, what a surprise, the Trump administration is busy deleting massive amounts of publicly-available science from EPA and other government websites (The Guardian, 3/28/17). On the one hand, this law requires publicly-available science to write rules to protect the environment, while the other hand deletes it. It is yet another law to hamstring the EPA, and allow polluters free reign.
