The article discusses the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) initiatives that serve as 2010 EPA indicators. It states that decisions or policies that emanated from the appointees of the administration of U.S. President George Bush are regarded as inadequate. It also cites several EPA policies which may provoke concerns including ingredient disclosure in pesticide formulations. It adds that emphasis on transparency can affect confidential business information (CBI).
