Las Cruces, NM – This morning, Attorney General Hector Balderas joined a coalition of 16 Attorneys General in urging Congress to reject the rollback of critical protective ozone air quality standards. In letters to the chairmen and ranking members of the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works and the House Committee on Energy and Commerce, the coalition detailed its opposition to S. 263 / H.R. 806, the Ozone Standards Implementation Act of 2017, which would roll back the ozone rule promulgated by the Environmental Protection Agency in 2015 – marking a major step backwards in efforts to combat pollution and its negative impact on public health.
