American Lung Association Expresses Disappointment in EPA’s Proposal to Keep Weak Limits on Particle Pollution in the Air We Breathe

In response to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) proposal to maintain the current National Ambient Air Quality Standards for Particulate Matter, Harold P. Wimmer, National President and CEO American Lung Association, issued the following statement:

“The Clean Air Act requires EPA to review the best science and determine what pollution limits are needed to fully protect public health. Instead, EPA has ignored the science and asserted that the harmful air pollution levels we’re breathing are ‘good enough.’ I urge leaders at all levels to join me in asking EPA to strengthen the standards and safeguard Americans’ health.”
