House passes bill barring EPA grantees from serving as rubber-stamps on agency science advisory panels

JunkScience.com helped make this happen.

The House passed HR 1029 yesterday, a bill to clean up the incestuous situation at EPA where the agency pays scientists to validate their own work which had also been agency funded.

While the bill itself was nothing really Earth-shattering, an amendment also passed that bars EPA grantees from serving on science review panels.

JunkScience.com helped get this ball rolling three years ago in the last Congress with this Washington Times expose.

  1. Some stuff that needs to be made into law shouldn’t be needed to be made into law. On to the Senate?

  2. Will Rep. Raul M.Grijalva, and Senators Edward Markey, Barbara Boxer, and Sheldon Whitehouse dust off their letters and send them to the institutions of “Science Advisory Panel” members???

    Don’t wait too long to see it happen (you won’t be alive), or hold your breath (a quicker end).
