ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the efforts of the American Coatings Association (ACA) to urge the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to stop from taking a lower primary ozone standard under the 2008 National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS). It says that in the revision of the standards, EPA is not taking studies that were published since 2008 science assessment used to defend the standard. However, EPA found that the ozone standard is careful of human health with enough margin of safety.
