EPAńˇ╗s Science Advisory Board: Improved Procedures Are Needed to Process Congressional Requests for Scientific Advice
J. Alfredo Gomez (au)
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) formulates rules to protect the environment and public health. EPA obtains advice and recommendations from the Science Advisory Board (SAB) and the Clean Air Scientific Advisory Committee (CASAC) -- two federal advisory committees that review the scientific and technical basis for EPA decision-making. The SAB is required to provide both the EPA Administrator and designated congressional committees with scientific advice as requested. CASAC is required, among other things, to provide advice to the Administrator on national ambient air quality standards (NAAQS). This report examines (1) the extent to which EPA procedures for processing congressional requests to the SAB ensure compliance with regulations; (2) the extent to which CASAC has provided advice related to NAAQS; and (3) policies EPA has to ensure that the SAB and CASAC maintain their independence when performing their work. Tables and figure. This is a print on demand report.
