LCV ED Fund Launches Web Site to Generate Clean Air Comments

July 18, 2001

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Contact: Scott Stoermer at (202) 785-8683 x599

Through a new League of Conservation Voters Education Fund (LCV Ed Fund) web site, www.CleanAirCleanWater.org, the LCV Ed Fund will gather comments on a controversial Bush administration proposal to weaken clean air standards and forward them to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

The EPA is considering whether to continue a Clinton-era clean air regulation called New Source Review (NSR). This provision of the Clean Air Act requires power plants to update their pollution controls when renovating. Environmentalists credit enforcement of NSR standards with improved air quality and respiratory health. However, the Bush administration is urging the EPA to discontinue NSR, responding to industry complaints that the law cuts into profits.

Citizens can add their voices to the debate and learn more about the issue by logging on to www.CleanAirCleanWater.org during the EPA's public comment period ending July 27.
