EPA Seeking Comment on Controversial Open Science Proposal

The Environmental Protection Agency is requesting public comment on a proposed rule that would require data and models underlying certain scientific studies to be made publicly available before the agency could use the studies in developing regulations. The proposal is modeled on the controversial “Honest and Open New EPA Science Treatment (HONEST) Act,” although it is narrower in scope, only applying only to pollutant exposure data and models underlying “pivotal” regulatory science.
