This is one way the EPA, and Jackson in particular, will work to be more open and transparent. The EPA has been progressing to meet all of OPM’s guidelines for the Open Government Directive. You can track EPA’s progress here: http://www.epa.gov/open/evaluate.html
About the administrator: “I am honored by the confidence and faith President Obama and the Senate have reposed in me to lead the EPA in confronting the environmental challenges currently before us. As administrator, I will ensure EPA’s efforts to address the environmental crises of today are rooted in three fundamental values: science-based policies and programs, adherence to the rule of law, and overwhelming transparency. By keeping faith with these values and unleashing innovative, forward-thinking approaches – we can further protect neighborhoods and communities throughout the country.”
