EPA STONEWALLING - MYRON EBELL
CEI.org: CEI Calls on EPA to Turn Over Bristol Bay Documents to Congress
The Competitive Enterprise Institute today called on the Environmental Protection Agency to stop stonewalling repeated requests over many months by the House of Representatives and turn over documents related to the agency’s Bristol Bay Watershed Assessment.
Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., Chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, first asked the EPA for the documents in May 2012. The EPA’s assessment of the potential impacts of the proposed Pebble Project copper, gold and molybdenum mine on the Bristol Bay area in southwest Alaska was completed before the proposed mine’s developers had applied for any of the necessary environmental permits.
