EPA Rule Will Help Protect People, Wildlife from Dangerous Ozone, Air Pollution

WASHINGTON, D.C. — The Environmental Protection Agency’s Good Neighbor Plan will help people and wildlife alike by significantly reducing smog-forming nitrogen oxide pollution from power plants and other industrial facilities. 

“The Good Neighbor Plan will help ensure that hardworking families, frontline and fenceline communities, and the people and wildlife living downwind from power plants and industrial facilities will not struggle to breathe clean air,” said Adrienne Hollis, vice president of environmental justice, public health, and community revitalization at the National Wildlife Federation. “Air pollution doesn’t respect state boundaries, and this rule will help the EPA address the persistent and pernicious effects of ground-level ozone and nitrogen oxide pollution. We look forward to working with Administrator Michael Regan and his team to implement and build upon this essential rule.”
