EPA Transparency Obligations

 Jackson emphasizes: "Our regulatory decisions should include a full explanation of the science issues addressed by the Agency, the data relevant to those issues, and the interpretations and judgments underlying the Agency"s scientific findings and conclusions...EPA promises to provide for the fullest possible public participation in decision-making. This requires not only that EPA remain open and accessible to those representing all points of view, but also that EPA offices responsible for decisions take affirmative steps to solicit the views of those who will be affected by these decisions...I am committed to fulfilling President Obama"s direction to agency heads to make use of tools and technology to increase outreach and interaction with the public. In short, we will let more sunlight into our Agency.
