WHEREAS the Environmental Protection Agency occasionally receives requests from special interest groups to change air quality standards; and
WHEREAS federal land management plans include analyses of air quality;
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that;
- CLUB 20 strongly opposes any effort by the Environmental Protection Agency to change clean air requirements before thorough analyses of the costs and benefits, the health risks and benefits, the impact on federal land management policies, and the effects on the economy of western Colorado are completed.
- CLUB 20 urges that Congressional field hearings be conducted throughout the west, particularly in western Colorado, to determine the social and economic effects of any new proposed air quality regulations.
