Virtual Earth Month – Chance to Share Your Voice (Updated!)
April 13, 2020
In 2018, a proposed rule was submitted to change the criteria for research the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) would rely on when making regulatory decisions. The “Strengthening Transparency in Regulatory Science” rule would restrict the agency’s use of studies that rely on confidential human health data. If passed, the EPA would ask researchers to share raw data collected about human subjects in order for their studies to be considered transparent to be used by the agency.
UPDATE: A recent supplemental notice to the original proposed rule was submitted and and the public comment period was extended from Friday, April 17th, until Monday, May 18. You have a chance to learn more and share your official comment here: http://ow.ly/XTkm50zcPOY
Still a little confused by what the proposed changes could mean? Check out this short video from Newsy – http://ow.ly/NE3x50zcQTR – or this article from InsideClimate News – http://ow.ly/8Qt950zcQUb .
