H.R. 1430: HONEST Act

This was a vote to pass H.R. 1430 in the House.

H.R. 1430 prohibits the EPA from proposing, finalizing, or disseminating regulations or assessments based upon science that is not publicly available. Specifically, the bill amends Section 6(b) of the Environmental Research, Development, and Demonstration Authorization Act of 1978 to prohibit the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) from proposing, finalizing, or disseminating a “covered action” unless all scientific and technical information relied on to support the action is: 1) the best available science; 2) specifically identified; and 3) publicly available in a manner sufficient for independent analysis and substantial reproduction of research results.
