Support the HONEST Act


H.R. 1430, the "Honest and Open New EPA Science Treatment Act of 2017" (or The HONEST Act) passed the House on March 29 and is now awaiting consideration in the Senate.  The bill would prohibit the EPA from writing any regulation that is not based on publicly available science.  The bill would also require that any scientific studies be replicable, and allow anyone who signs a confidentiality agreement to view redacted personal or trade information in the data.

Tell your Senators to support the HONEST Act.

Dear [Decision Maker],

On behalf of my company and the U.S. vinyl industry, I respectfully ask you to support the "Honest and Open New EPA Science Treatment (HONEST) Act of 2017." This bill would improve the transparency and reliability of scientific and technical information that Federal agencies rely upon to develop new regulations.

The American public must have confidence that the scientific and technical data driving regulatory action can be trusted. Please support the HONEST Act to protect scientific integrity and ensure transparency in the regulatory process.
