Groups to U.S. EPA: Use Honest Cost-Benefit Balancing

With more than 100 other organizations, OMA signed a letter to the Office of Management and Budget on how EPA performs cost-benefit analysis.

The groups wrote: “We believe the time has come for EPA to reexamine its statutory interpretations, and unless prohibited by statute, implement its regulatory statutes through cost-benefit balancing.”

The goal of the communication is to advance broad regulatory reforms that move federal agencies toward transparent science, strong risk-assessment, and honest cost-benefit considerations. 6/26/2018
