  • The House Science, Space and Technology Committee voted Tuesday to advance a bill intended to stop the Environmental Protection Agency’s use of what Republicans call secret science to write regulations.

    Texas Representative Lamar Smith says EPA’s regulatory process is both hidden and flawed.

    Smith says EPA hides the data and then handpicks scientists to review it. He says the legislation would require EPA’s science to be available for validation and replication because Americans impacted by EPA regulations have a right to see the data and determine for themselves if the agency’s actions are based on sound science or a partisan agenda.

  • In May a 13-person team of senior-level buyers from top red meat importers in China and Hong Kong toured pork and beef processing plants in America’s heartland with the U.S. Meat Export Federation.

    The team also was briefed by U.S. beef and pork exporters during their tour in the country. One U.S. producer said the quality of the customers who came from China and Hong Kong was exceptionally high.
