CMTA President Jack Stewart testified this week in Los Angeles before the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to oppose the recent proposal to change National Ozone Standards.  Stewart testified that no change in the standard is necessary because the current standard is working.  In addition, public health benefits of a lower standard are questionable and the economic impacts of a lower standard could be severe.
