ABSTRACT
The article reports on the revisions to the National Ambient Air Quality Standards for ground-level ozone proclaimed by the U.S. Environment Protection Agency. These revisions are not entirely consistent with the recommendations of the agency's own Clean Air Scientific Advisory Committee. The final rule is a shift from the air quality goals of the Clean Air Act.
