Summary by Ground News
Former EPA chief Tom Hatton says Mark McGowan pressured him to withdraw tough new emissions guidelines. Dr Hatton described the political intervention as "unprecedented" in the 50-year history of the agency.

The ABC has spoken to people involved in drafting the guidelines and former EPA board members immediately after his call from McGowan.
