The Obama Administration recently proposed updates to the Regional Haze Rule, a Clean Air Act program intended to reduce air pollution in our most iconic national parks. Currently, too many of our parks are plagued by haze pollution that not only limits visibility but also threatens the health of visitors, especially children, seniors and those living with asthma.
The Environmental Protection Agency’s proposal contains many improvements that will help states meet the goal of reducing dangerous haze pollution, but also includes provisions that could allow known polluters to delay or avoid their responsibility to clean up their fair share of pollution, leaving national parks—and their visitors and wildlife—to pay the price.
On the 100-year anniversary of our national park system, it is up to all of us who value these treasured places and clean air to speak up and ensure the Obama Administration strengthens the rule by closing loopholes to hold polluters accountable and put parks on the path to clean air.
Send a message today to urge the Administration to finalize the strongest possible Regional Haze Rule.
