Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) career staff working at the vehicle testing lab admitted to working with the lobbyist of a company opposed to the Trump administration’s agenda, according to a letter obtained by The Daily Caller News Foundation.

The letter from EPA to lawmakers on the House Committee on Science, Space and Technology over alleged collusion between career staff in Michigan and auto industry lobbyists to undermine efforts to repeal Obama-era regulations on gliders — trucks with refurbished engines installed into new chasses.

Volvo “expressed a willingness to assist with EPA’s acquisition of a glider vehicle for testing through its dealership network,” reads the letter. Volvo arranged for two glider trucks to be delivered to EPA, which were tested in late 2017.

However, officials told EPA Assistant Administrator Bill Wehrum the study was conducted “independent of any outside stakeholder input,” adding that “while Volvo did provide unsolicited views on the EPA test program, EPA staff directed and carried out the test program independent from Volvo.”

Wehrum signed the letter, sent to House lawmakers investigating the matter on Thursday, but the assistant administrator hedged a bit. Wehrum wrote he “consulted with relevant staff in preparing this response.” In other words, don’t blame him if the information isn’t accurate.

The letter was first obtained by New York Times reporter Eric Lipton, whose been covering the glider kit issue for some time. The Obama administration limited the sale of glider trucks, crippling the industry. More

Downsize and decentralize the US government. Now that would be a good start toward draining the swamp.
