Indiana Doctors Criticize Senate-Adopted Resolution that Condemns New Clean Air Protections

INDIANAPOLIS - The Indiana State Senate voted today to advance Senate Resolution 57, a measure condemning the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) proposed stronger safeguards to reduce dangerous smog pollution.

The U.S. EPA will finalize a proposal this year to reduce the safe level of smog pollution nationwide. In November, the U.S. EPA released its initial smog pollution proposal that reduces the safe level of smog pollution from 75 parts per billion to one in the range of 65 ppb to 70 ppb, while also seeking comment on setting it as low as 60 ppb.
