Link: At Biden’s request, Montana judge vacates Trump EPA’s ‘secret science’ rule

The ruling by Judge Brian Morris, chief judge for the U.S. District Court for the District of Montana, Great Falls, marked a victory for environmental groups and public health advocates. Just two weeks before Biden’s inauguration, EPA finalized a rule requiring researchers to disclose the raw data involved in their public health studies before the agency could rely upon their conclusions.

It was a rule meant to hamstring the EPA.
