EPA Announces Intention To Nominate Members To Three Important Federal Advisory Committees

Contact Information: 

WASHINGTON (November 3, 2017) – Today, Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator Scott Pruitt announced his intention to appoint members who will serve on the Board of Scientific Counselors (BOSC), the Clean Air Science Advisory Committee (CASAC) and the Science Advisory Board (SAB). 

“To ensure that EPA is receiving the best independent scientific advice, I am appointing highly-qualified experts and scientists to these important committees,” said EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt.  

In a fair, open, and transparent fashion, EPA reviewed hundreds of qualified applicants nominated for these committees.  Members who will be appointed include experts throughout the environmental stakeholder community, including from NGOs, academia, industry, and state, tribal and local officials. The makeup of the membership speaks to EPA’s commitment to science and openness to expertise from a diverse array of perspectives. Those nominees willing to serve have committed to remaining financially independent from EPA grants during their tenures.
