Did EPA meet rulemaking standards in greenhouse gas finding?
Wednesday - 10/5/2011, 9:25am EDT
The EPA is supposed to listen to outside experts before it goes ahead with new rules for industry.
Those outside opinions often come in the form of technical support documents. But EPA auditors now say EPA didn't give enough weight to the technical support document concerning greenhouse gases.
In a recent EPA inspector general's report, agency watchdogs found EPA generally met the standards for rulemaking but didn't meet OMB requirements for peer review of a "highly influential scientific assessment."
So what should the agency do differently?
Wade Najjum, the assistant inspector general for program evaluation at EPA, joined the Federal Drive with Tom Temin and Amy Morris to discuss the recent IG report and what's next.
