June 9, 2020
On May 28th, 2020 the House Committee on Oversight and Reform published a video interview with various experts and activists on the impacts to public health caused by the actions of the EPA over the past few months.
Rep. Harley Rouda, the Chairman of the Subcommittee on Environment called CIDA's Hilton Kelley to speak about the effect of the Trump Administration Rollbacks on Environmental legislation.
The suspension of enforcement on environmental and health protections without a end date are magnifying the negative impacts on health in vulnerable communities. Without enforcement of regulations vulnerable communities are defenseless against large polluting industry, Hilton Kelley points out.
The excessively large role industry plays in the decision making process of the EPA is best described by Hilton Kelley as "the fox guarding the hen house".
