With so much time spent debating federal environmental policy, it is easy to forget that state and local governments play a crucial rule in cleaning up and protecting our nation?s air.  Indeed, states and localities began to tackle the problem of air pollution long before the federal government did.  They have been laboratories of pollution-control innovation.  And they remain vital partners with the federal government in protecting our citizens from dirty air.
With these thoughts in mind, the State and Territorial Air Pollution Program Administrators and the Association of Local Air Pollution Control Officials have teamed with the California Air Resources Board to present
an informational brochure on the importance of maintaining the rights of states and localities to protect their citizens from dirty air:

As noted in the brochure, some would like to truncate those rights.  STAPPA and ALAPCO believe that after reading this brochure, you will agree those rights should be left intact.
We hope you will find this background material interesting and useful.  This the brochure is also available in hard copy upon request from STAPPA and ALAPCO.  Please do not hesitate to request hard copies and to share them widely.
