Clean Air Act
The Clean Air Act is one of the nation’s most important health protection laws. The Council’s Clean Air Act Program goal is to ensure that the Act is fully implemented and enforced in Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Delaware. The Council acts as a regional environmental voice on Clean Air Act issues. Finally, the Council acts as a bridge between national environmental organizations and regional groups on clean air issues that impact the region.
Clean Air Council works towards these goals through government oversight, community organizing and lawsuits. When the Council believes state and federal governments are not fully implementing Clean Air Act requirements it will take appropriate action. In addition, the Council participates in the government rule-making process, shares its testimony with other interested organizations, and facilitates public involvement in the process. Taking part in the administrative process is essential for preserving the right to engage in further enforcement actions. Public participation is also one of the most important and effective methods for citizens to advocate for positive environmental change.
