PLF Senior Attorney Ted Hadzi-Antich joins host, Bob Krauter, for a discussion about Ted’s recent testimony before a senate subcommittee that is seeking to make EPA’s Science Advisory Board more transparent, effective, and fair.  The hearing included testimony on S. 543, legislation that is being proffered in response to criticism that EPA is not using the Board properly to provide peer review of the scientific bases of its regulatory proposals.  Ted’s testimony criticized EPA’s failure to send proposed regulations governing carbon dioxide emissions to the Board for expert analysis before finalizing the rules.
