In a Senate Environment and Public Works (EPW) Committee hearing considering the nominations of individuals for Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) positions, Senator Boozman asked Thomas Burke who is nominated to be Assistant Administrator of the Office of Research and Development of the EPA about collaboration with the National Center for Toxicological Research. This facility is located in Jefferson, Arkansas near Pine Bluff.
Boozman also asked Burke if he would commit to work with members of Congress for commonsense reforms to strengthen the Scientific Advisory Board (SAB). In February, Boozman and Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) introduced the EPA Science Advisory Board Reform Act to improve confidence in the fairness and transparency of EPA regulations and rulemaking.
