The Institute for Trade, Standards and Sustainable Development is challenging the EPA to show compliance with the Information Quality Act (IQA). The IQA requires federal agencies to ensure that regulations are based upon scientific assessments that have undergone a robust and rigorous peer review process. ITSSD president Lawrence Kogan remarks, "The IQA provides the public with a powerful tool for increasing regulatory transparency and government accountability." He invites Atlas Network partners to learn about how ITSSD's Freedom of Information Act requests seek to determine whether the EPA had skirted it's IQA requirements in concluding that certain greenhouse gases endanger public health and welfare, within the meaning of the Clean Air Act. The topic is covered in detail in this Daily Caller article.
