Harmonizing Ozone Standards

WASHINGTON, D.C., July 18, 2017 | Andre Castro (202-225-6105) | comments

The U.S. House of Representatives passed H.R. 806, the Ozone Standards Implementation Act. Congressman Bill Flores (R-Texas), a coauthor of the bill, released the following statement regarding passage of the bill:

“Today, the House voted to streamline two conflicting Obama-era ozone standards. These unworkable timeframes included in the 2015 standard created uncertainty for our communities and job creators, and they ultimately penalized hardworking American families. The Ozone Standards Implementation Act gives states the needed time to fully implement these two different ozone standards in a practical and coordinated manner. This bipartisan bill provides for a more efficient, cost-effective implementation process while protecting American jobs and public health. I am pleased that a bulk of this bill is based on the Ozone National Ambient Air Quality Standard Deadline Harmonization Act, which I introduced in the last Congress. By harmonizing the conflicting ozone standards, we will continue to improve our air quality and environment without placing unnecessary burdens on our economy.”

I wholeheartedly commend Dr. McKown for her commitment to higher education and serving Central Texas. We are grateful for the work she does on behalf of McLennan Community College and its students. Her leadership was influential as I worked to develop a thoughtful position on how to approach solutions for our Dreamer population. It is an honor to represent great leaders like Dr. McKown in Congress. I congratulate her on this significant milestone and wish her continued success.
