Lung Association Responds to U.S. Court of Appeals Ruling to Vacate the Cross-State Air Pollution Rule

(August 27, 2012)

Statement of Jeff Seyler, American Lung Association of the Northeast President & CEO - from August 21, 2012

"Today’s court ruling is a tremendous setback for the health of residents across our region, especially kids and seniors. It puts polluters before the public’s health.  And it allows out-of-state industries to continue sending their toxic pollution across the Northeast while our children and families pay the price. And that’s just not fair."
