The Oversight and Government Reform Committee in the U.S. House of Representatives has subpoenaed the EPA for documents about the proposed Pebble Mine.
 
The subpoenas were issued by committee chairman Darrell Issa from California.
 
He’s asking for documents and communications relating to the EPA’s permit review, including any action under section 404-C of the Clean Water Act. The subpoenas come on the heels of a letter sent to the EPA Inspector General requesting an investigation into the EPA’s decision to use its authority under the Clean Water Act to stop the issuance of permits that would be needed for the Pebble Mine project to move forward.
