New York Times: EPA plans to limit scientific research used in writing public health regulations

 

November 12, 2019



Washington - (CNN) - The Environment Protection Agency plans to limit the scientific research that the government can use to form public health regulations, The New York Times reported Monday.

A draft of the EPA's proposal obtained by the Times would require scientists to disclose their raw data, including confidential medical records, in order for the agency to consider a study's conclusions. The move would complicate the enactment of new clean air and water regulations, which are largely rooted in academic studies that rely on confidentiality agreements because of personal health disclosures.
