Conservation and Environmental Justice Opportunities

By May 30 ask the EPA to reject the 'Strengthening Transparency in Regulatory Science' rule that would prevent the use of standard research into health effects and vastly expand the overhead required to make decisions in the EPA. Simple way: https://environmenttexas.webaction.org/p/dia/action4/common/public/?action_KEY=26655 Or to make the case yourself, that the proposed rule would block the use of good science, make your comment at https://www.regulations.gov/docket?D=EPA-HQ-OA-2018-0259 . Sierra Club asked that at least the comment period be extended by another sixty days.
