AWC supports House passage of "Secret Science Reform Act"

Nov 19, 2014

WASHINGTON, D.C. – American Wood Council President and CEO Robert Glowinski issued the following statement on the passage of H.R. 4012, the "Secret Science Reform Act of 2014," by the U.S. House of Representatives. If enacted, the bill would require the Environmental Protection Agency to use reproducible science and disclose all information used in its decision before finalizing regulations.

AWC signed on to a letter of support for the bill in June.

"AWC supports the effort by the House and lead-sponsor Congressman David Schweikert to ensure EPA uses the highest quality science when framing environmental regulations. It's unfortunate that President Obama is expected to veto this very pragmatic and reasonable legislation, as we believe it is consistent with the administration's commitment to both science integrity goals and transparency in the federal rulemaking process.

"Wood products manufacturers face the potential for more than $2 billion in new regulatory costs in coming years. Making the transparency of EPA's science a priority will only aid in the credibility of future regulations."
