CAB files comments on “Transparency Rule”

On May 15, 2020, the Clean Air Board of Central Pennsylvania  filed written comments opposing EPA’s proposed rule  entitled “Strengthening Transparency in Science.”  CAB expressed concern that the proposed rule will work to create barriers to the use of highly respected and valuable epidemiological studies in EPA’s decisions.  Along with other consequences, under the proposed rule, large epidemiological studies like the effect of air pollution and correlation with public health in regard to respiratory, cardiac, and neurological impacts would be discounted, to the detriment of people living close to polluting sources.
