Three States to Start Air Pollution Trading

EPA Overrides Internal Objections on Ability to Enforce


Washington, DC... Brushing aside internal objections, the US Environmental

Protection Agency (EPA) is now set to formally approve authority for three

states to trade air pollution credits on an "open market" or inter-sector

basis, according to records released today by Public Employees for

Environmental Responsibility (PEER).  The three states are New Jersey,

Michigan and Illinois.  All three states are air quality non-attainment

areas and none has an approved attainment plan.
