Policy Resolution: 2018-05: Air Quality and Methane Emissions Regulation

Air Quality

WGA Policy Resolution 2018-05 Air Quality and Methane Emissions Regulation: Western states, which face unique air quality challenges, have the authority to manage air quality within their borders. This resolution, which updates and combines previous resolutions, provides recommendations to improve the state-federal relationship in the regulation of air quality and methane emissions, ozone regulation, exceptional events, regional haze, and wildfire and prescribed fire. The Governors, for example, advocate for improved tools that encourage the use of prescribed fire, which is managed as part of state air quality programs, to reduce the air quality impacts of uncharacteristic wildfire in the West. Read, download the resolution.
