EPA Public Hearing on Proposed Good Neighbor Plan
The Good Neighbor proposal would deliver improvements in air quality in cities and counties across the country to protect people from preventable premature deaths, asthma attacks, and respiratory illness. The proposal targets the ozone and ozone-forming NOX emissions that are being transported by wind across state lines, often over long distances. Downwind areas – urban, suburban, and rural impacted by pollution from upwind states, would benefit.
Date and Time: April 21, 2021 from 10:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. Eastern Time (ET)
