Health and Environmental Groups Oppose EPA Chemical Testing Programs
The Physicians Committee on Responsible Medicine has written to EPA Administrator Whitman on behalf of a number of national organizations in opposition to three major EPA chemical testing initiatives. The letter raised a number of issues which could constitute violations of the Paperwork Reduction Act. Specifically, the letter charges that some of the tests are redundant and that at least some of the tests will not produce useful results, i.e. lack practical utility. The PCRM also claims that EPA staff is, "worried about how to handle the expected deluge of incoming data." Agencies are required by the PRA to a plan for the efficient and effective management and use of data prior to seeking OMB approval for the proposed information collection.
