Environmental Protection Agency

A government union is making its case to Congress to re-establish Environmental Protection Agency research libraries. An EPA Local of AFGE hosted a recent breakfast to discuss the closures resulting from Bush Administration budget cuts. In the closing process, hundreds of paper files were lost or thrown out. When the Government Accountability Office investigated, they recommended a moratorium on future closures until the all files could be digitized. EPA CIO at the time Molly O'Neil said she didn't know what was lost because the EPA hadn't done an inventory.
