Dr. Julie Gerberding
Director, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and
Administrator, Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry
1600 Clifton Road NE
Atlanta, Georgia 30333

Dear Dr. Gerberding:

The Subcommittee on Investigations and Oversight of the House Science and Technology Committee is continuing to investigate the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR).  The Committee’s concerns go well beyond the agency’s indefensible handling of its February 2007 Health Consultation regarding formaldehyde levels in travel trailers provided to victims of Hurricanes Katrina and Rita by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) or ATSDR management’s treatment of whistleblower Dr. Chris De Rosa.  As part of our continuing investigation, the Committee has learned of several other issues where members of the public and ATSDR insiders believe that political pressure and the influence of industry has resulted in the production of deficient, incomplete and/or muted reports, studies or Health Consultations.
