Air Quality

Just two days after the Trump administration revoked California's right to set its own emissions standards for automobiles, the state has fired back.

California, 22 other states and several major cities filed a lawsuit in federal court Friday against the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, which is the division of the Department of Transportation that issued the rule revoking California's authority.

A new report by the American Lung Association gives Franklin County's air quality a failing grade due to the high number of air quality alerts last year.  

The Ohio EPA is seeking from the federal government a new air quality designation for central Ohio that the American Lung Association has consistently rated as poor.
