EPA Launching Broad Effort

Last Monday the EPA sent out a little note about how they are 'launching a broad effort' to better understand the health risks of formaldehyde in pressed wood products. One little sentence caught my eye: "Through this process, EPA will develop risk assessments on the potential adverse health effects, evaluate the costs and benefits of possible control technologies and approaches, and determine whether EPA action is needed to address any identified risks"

Does this mean that the EPA is going to do a cross benefit analysis on the economics of poisoning people?
