I am a scientist and chemical engineer. This bill is incredibly misleading, because on the surface it sounds like a good idea. It is not. Many EPA studies are impossible to reproduce, but still critical to advancing understanding. A great example would be studies of the impacts of disasters such as oil spills. These studies are inherently not repeatable because they would require reproducing the disaster, hence this bill would keep them from being used in creating regulations. This is clearly absurd, but it benefits big business so the Republicans want it.
