Rep. Graves to EPA: Honesty is Always the Best Policy
Washington, Mar 29 -
Rep. Tom Graves (R-GA-14) issued the following statement after voting in favor of the HONEST Act (H.R. 1430), which prohibits the EPA from issuing regulations based on science that is not publicly available: ###
“Honestly, the EPA cannot continue using hidden science while making big decisions that affect people’s livelihoods and communities. By keeping scientific data secret, the EPA prevents the public from reviewing, testing and replicating the information that governs them. Honesty is always the best policy, and this bill will help ensure the EPA is upfront with the American people.”
H.R. 1430 passed the House by a vote of 228 to 194.
