The Environmental Protection Agency's Admninistrator answers critiisms leveled at her agency by Texas lawmakers. 

Gina McCarthy told 550 KTSA News claims the EPA isn't transparent enough are simply not true. 

"EPA is a wonderful science-based organization. We make decisions based on science. We're as transparent as we can be, and I'm proud of the work that we do" McCarthy said while touring a San Antonio solar farm. She said the agency will answer Congressman Lamar Smith's criticism over what he calls it's use of "secret science" in crafting policies and regulations.  

"I will make sure that we provide the committee (the Science, Space, and Technology Committee Smith Chairs in the House) and him with any information that he needs so that he;s assured of that" McCarthy said.
