Loudermilk Works to Ensure EPA Uses Sound Science 

As a member of the Science, Space, and Technology Committee, Rep. Loudermilk (R-GA) issued the following statement after supporting legislation to ensure the EPA relies on sound science that is public, not secretive.

"For several years, the EPA and other government bureaucracies have been pushing out environmental regulations based on new scientific ‘discoveries’ relating to climate change. However, the data on which these ‘discoveries’ are based have not been made available to the general scientific community for review or fact-checking. This has brought into question the overall motives of the EPA and other agencies who are demanding more environmental regulations. All regulatory decisions should be based on factual scientific information that is open and available for public viewing. Americans deserve common sense reform, and this bill is a positive step to bring honesty and sound science to the EPA.”

The Honest and Open New EPA Science Treatment Act of 2017, H.R. 1430, requires the EPA to base its regulations on science that is open to the public, not kept secret.
