An updated U.S. Clean Air Act is needed to better prepare ourselves for the problems and opportunities of a 21st century world.

The primary goals of the draft “Clean Air Act of 2018” are to:

  • Focus on eliminating pollution rather than finding a “safe” level of pollution
  • Simplify and remove the need for approximately 75% of the current Clean Air Act
  • Create a comprehensive multi-pollutant approach to addressing air quality and climate change concerns
  • Realign responsibility and authority under the Act to increase the efficiency and effectiveness of International, Federal, State, and Local control efforts; and
  • Modernize and simplify the Act to make it more transparent and easier to implement and enforce.

Clean Air and Climate Change Act of 2018

    I am in total agreement that the Clean Air Act needs to be simplified. Under the current CAA, way too many resources are spent on compliance that do absolutely nothing to improve air quality.

    • Thanks Lee for your comment. It is especially powerful coming from someone who clearly has significant experience and expertise in the direct day-to-day workings of the Clean Air Act. Again, thank you for sharing. – Jed
