The IAQM supports the review and revision of the Clean Air Act. This legislation has its origins in a time when the control of air pollution was concerned almost exclusively with the burning of coal. Today, the problems of air quality are very different and the management of air quality requires a different emphasis. Streamlining of legislation is a worthy aim and the IAQM supports this principle. We are equally concerned with ensuring that legislation is appropriate and effective. A modern Clean Air Act should be capable of controlling current and future air pollution and be an effective tool for air quality management. Simply removing elements of the existing Act will not be commensurate with this. Read the full IAQM response.
