Summary:

"Changes to the scientific review process of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) proposed by Administrator Scott Pruitt last year are back in the spotlight. In particular, there is growing concern about the “transparency rule,” — what many have dubbed the “secret science” rule. The transparency rule specifies the types of scientific evidence that may be used in rulemaking and requires that all scientific and technical information (e.g., data, protocols, computer codes, and models) used by the agency be publicly available online in a form that allows independent analysis and reproduction of results."
