EDF is working to hold the Trump administration accountable, to ensure its activities are transparent, and that information is provided to the public. Using tools afforded under the federal Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), EDF has requested information from EPA and several other federal agencies about a myriad of activities impacting our environment and public health.
You can explore the information EDF has received so far below. These documents are provided as we received them and have not been altered for clarity. We welcome your assistance in reviewing this information. If you would like to share any of your findings, please email us.
