Before those testifying could get a turn, some committee members weighed in. Committee Chair Rep. Grace Napolitano, D-California, questioned the process and actions taken by the EPA.
The EPA on July 2 said the draft EIS lacked critical information on potential risks to Bristol Bay’s watershed. Later that month, the EPA removed an Obama administration proposal that mine supporters called a “preemptive veto.” The EPA has since been sued over this step.
