Climate change skeptics propose bill to make EPA release the data behind its policies

A coalition of House Republicans have introduced a bill that would require the Environmental Protection Agency to publicly release all research related to a policy before implementing it. The Secret Science Reform Act of 2014 is meant to allow independent scientists to verify the data behind environmental regulations, creating more accountability for the agency. Its also a way for the agencys opponents to create more barriers to regulation and attempt to discredit environmental policies. Virtually every regulation proposed by the Obama administration has been justified by nontransparent data and unverifiable claims, writes House Committee on Science, Space, and Technology Chair Lamar Smith (R-TX), who is also a sponsor of the bill.
