Wisconsin Forced to Toughen Clean Air Permits
March 5, 2004
The Club recently scored another clean air victory when it forced the Bush Administration to issue a formal finding that the state of Wisconsin's Clean Air Act program is broken and needs urgent repair. The Administration has granted the State of Wisconsin authority to administer a permit program for industrial polluters under the federal Clean Air Act. Unhappily, the state’s record of implementing this program has been abysmal. The Club launched a legal campaign, arguing that the federal government must either force the state to improve its pollution-protection performance or else run the permit program itself.
