'The Trump administration is preparing to significantly limit the scientific & medical research that the government can use to determine public health regulations, overriding protests from scientists and physicians who say the new rule would undermine the scientific underpinnings of government policymaking. A new draft of the Environmental Protection Agency proposal,  with the Orwellian title titled Strengthening Transparency in Regulatory Science,  requires scientists to disclose all of their raw data, including confidential medical records, before the agency could consider an academic study’s conclusions --  taking aim at public health studies conducted outside the government that could justify tightening regulations on smog in the air, mercury in water, lead in paint and other potential threats to human health.'

"Transparency, reproducibility and application of current scientific knowledge are paramount to providing the foundation required for sound regulations," the American Chemistry Council wrote to the E.P.A. in support of the plan.

The National Association of Pediatric Nurse Practitioners said it was "deeply concerned" that the rule would lead to the exclusion of studies, "ultimately resulting in weaker environmental and health protections and greater risks to children's health."

The National Center for Science Education said ruling out studies that do not use open data "would send a deeply misleading message, ignoring the thoughtful processes that scientists use to ensure that all relevant evidence is considered."

The Medical Library Association and the Association of Academic Health Science Libraries said the proposal "contradicts our core values."

BUT The new version does not appear to have taken any of the opposition into consideration.
