Breaking News: MEC asks EPA to investigate Michigan's air quality program

The Michigan Environmental Council (MEC) today asked the Environmental Protection Agency to investigate Michigan's air quality program:

MEC believes that chronic underfunding of the program has led to violations of the Clean Air Act. They include an inadequate inspection schedule for major pollution sources and complaints about dangerous air pollution that go unanswered.

Funding sources that might alleviate the problem include general fund allocations from the legislature, or increased permit fees on polluters.
