Greenies beware – you can’t use “settled” science anymore – it now must be real science. This is very clever. It forces the Courts to look at “the science”. Science becomes an issue in all the litigation.
House passes US EPA science transparency bill
30 March 2017 / United States
The US House of Representatives has passed a measure to bar the EPA from taking regulatory actions based on science that is “not transparent and reproducible”.
Sponsored by Lamar Smith (R–Texas), the Honest and Open New EPA Science Treatment Act (HONEST Act) passed the chamber on a 228-194 vote.
If it becomes law, it would block the EPA from proposing, finalising or disseminating regulations, assessments, guidance and other actions unless all scientific and technical information relied upon to develop them is:
the “best available science”;
publicly available in a manner “sufficient for independent analysis and substantial reproduction of research results”.
