A new vision for clean air
When President George H.W. Bush signed into law the Clean Air Act Amendments (CAAA) of 1990, he put in place a precedent-setting statute that completely revamped our nation’s approach to improving air quality. That statute was an earnest commitment to environmental protection; the comprehensive air pollution control strategy established in it provided state and local regulators with tools to make meaningful strides toward achieving clean air goals. Fourteen years later, it is evident that the CAAA have served as the foundation for a number of success stories.
