Comments to EPA on Draft Revision of Technical Guidance for Assessing Environmental Justice in Regulatory Analysis

EPA seeks comments on the it's Draft Revised EJ Technical Guidance, which highlights technical approaches that analysts can use to evaluate environmental justice concerns in regulatory actions. The Institute for Policy Integrity's comments to the agency advocate for enhanced documentation and transparency in environmental justice assessments. Specifically, we recommend that:

  • In Chapter 6, EPA should instruct analysts to document missing or incomplete data in as much detail as possible in cases where it is lacking; and 
  • EPA should instruct analysts to be as specific and transparent as possible when making analytical choices for assessing environmental justice concerns.
