The state of Ohio has gone to federal court in hopes of blocking the federal government's plan for implementing new ozone standards. Ohio officials said the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency plan would not allow states enough flexibility in choosing how to meet the new one-hour ozone standard. The state has considered options including changing its passenger vehicle emissions testing program. The U.S. EPA's implementation plan for the new ozone standard, which it completed in April, prohibits states from altering any current air pollution control measures, according to Ohio officials.
