A joint resolution providing for congressional disapproval under chapter 8 of title 5, United States Code, of the rule submitted by the Environmental Protection Agency relating to Cross-State Air Pollution Rule Update for the 2008 Ozone NAAQS.
It's laughable that we have to defend statutes to keep our air clean. It's kind of a no brainier. Given situations like Flint, and my home town of Horsham PA, in which the EPA's testing of groundwater found harmful levels of PFOS, we should be seeing an uptick in environmental regulations, not a decline.
Clean air and water are basic to the health and welfare of all citizens of this country. Pollution knows no boundaries and any legislation that degrades current regulations has the potential to endanger us now and for generations in the future.
This is a question of States Rights- one state may not pollute the air of another. Air quality, as well as natural resource depletion and pollution know not the political boundaries of state lines. Keep protections in place that prevent others from polluting and damaging our natural resources
These updates are for good - cleaner air for all. As Roy said, air pollution does not respect state boundaries. For those who want more info: https://www.epa.gov/ozone-pollution/2015-revision-2008-ozone-national-ambient-air-quality-standards-naaqs-supporting
