EPA employees leak information about their anti-leaking classes

The Hill reports that U.S. Environmental Protection Agency staff now must attend classes on how to prevent government leaks—part of an administration-wide effort. In an ironic twist, a memo and other material on the classes were leaked to the press. Not many EPA staffers handle classified information, but Administrator Scott Pruitt is now trying to block them from disclosing “controlled unclassified information.” In response to Pruitt’s pro-polluter policies, employees have already made public various agency plans, memos, climate reportsbudget cuts, and details regarding general discord among EPA staff. (Thanks, guys!)
