We hope you will join us in asking EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt to release the identities of all the new chemicals it has approved, despite concerns about human health, for use in oil and gas drilling as well as hydraulic fracturing. First responders and
communities around the country are being put at a risk of exposure from unknown chemicals every day in areas near oil and gas wells, in part because the EPA has not released the identities of these chemicals. A FOIA request submitted by the Partnership for
Policy Integrity revealed that from 2003 to 2014 the EPA approved 41 new chemicals for hydraulic fracturing and oil and gas drilling, even though the agency’s own scientists had serious health concerns about these chemicals. State and Tribal officials, first
responders, medical professionals, and the public have the right to know what chemicals are in the environment and drinking water.
