Emmett Clinic Files Comments on Behalf of Environmental Clinics Opposing EPA’s Proposed “Strengthening Transparency in Regulatory Science” Rule

August 15, 2018 – The Emmett Clinic filed a second set of comments today opposing EPA’s proposal to “Strengthen Transparency in Regulatory Science” on behalf of itself and other environmental clinics across the country, urging EPA to withdraw the proposed rule both because it is procedurally deficient and beyond the scope of EPA’s authority and because, if adopted, it will undermine science-based health and environmental safeguards that are critical to the protection of public health and a strong economy.  The environmental law clinics that have signed onto these comments are the Abrams Environmental Law Clinic at University of Chicago Law School, the Getches-Green Natural Resources and Environmental Law Clinic at University of Colorado Law School, the Environmental Law Clinic at Columbia University School of Law, the Environmental Law Clinic at University of Denver Sturm College of Law, the Environmental Law and Policy Clinic at Duke University School of Law, the Turner Environmental Law Clinic at Emory University School of Law, LeRoy C. Paddock, Associate Dean for Environmental Studies at George Washington University Law School, the Environmental Law and Land Use Clinic at Gonzaga University School of Law, the Environmental Law Clinic at University of Maryland Carey School of Law, the Environmental Advocacy Center at Northwestern University School of Law, the Environmental Litigation Clinic at Pace University School of Law, and the Interdisciplinary Environmental Clinic at Washington University School of Law.  The link to the comment letter is here: Environmental Law Clinic Comments re Docket ID No. EPA-HQ-OA-2018-0259.
