LCV on EPA’s Ozone Standard Proposal

Nov 26, 2014

WASHINGTON, DC – The League of Conservation Voters (LCV) President Gene Karpinski released this statement following the EPA’s new proposed standard for ozone pollution:   

“We applaud the President and EPA for taking this important step to protect public health and look forward to working with them to ensure the final rule is as protective as possible. While Big Oil and other polluters try to ignore the science, it’s clear that Americans need to know when this dangerous air pollution reaches unhealthy levels. As Thanksgiving approaches, people across the country can add cleaner air to the list of things for which they are grateful.”
