By Diane Katz ~ A proposed rule announced Tuesday by Scott Pruitt, administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency, is intended to bring much-needed transparency to agency rule-making.

Government agencies collude with activists and lawyers against chemicals and companies By Paul Driessen ~ It’s bad enough when tax-exempt foundations and activist groups use junk science and scare campaigns to promote excessive regulations and set the stage for class action lawsuits against perfectly good products.

In the decades since […]
