Kevin Cromar Submits Comments to EPA’s Proposed

Ozone Transport Rule


Director of Heath, Environment and Policy, Kevin Cromar, led a team of researchers from NYU, Harvard University, and George Washington University in writing comments for EPA’s proposed Ozone Transport Rule, a federal implementation plan addressing the responsibilities of 23 states to control emissions from power plants and other sources affecting downwind states that fail to meet federal air-quality standards. They address why the “good neighbor provision” in the Clean Air Act is a critical tool for states to meet air-quality standards, outline the adverse health impacts of ozone exposures that would occur in the absence of this rule, and provide detailed feedback on the framework used to determine pollution limits for individual states. This rule will drastically reduce emissions from individual coal power plants that have consistently refused to install commonly used technology that would cut emissions by over 70 percent.
