Republicans on the House Science Committee sent a follow-up letter on Monday to EPA Chief Administrator Lisa Jackson, once again pressing her for records related to the use of alias email accounts.
“The public trusts that its government will operate in an open and transparent manner. As the EPA seeks to implement regulations that will have a significant impact on the everyday lives of Americans it should do so in a manner that respects the public’s trust,” reads the letter.
The letter was a follow-up to one sent last month to Jackson asking for documents and information related to the use of alias email accounts. The EPA responded to the committee two weeks late and confirmed the use of a second email account by EPA Chief Jackson, but the agency did not fulfill the committee’s request for records.
