The Clean Air Act is the federal law that regulates air emissions from stationary and mobile sources. This law authorizes EPA to establish National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS) to protect public health and welfare and to regulate emissions of hazardous air pollutants. The Clean Air Act was originally enacted in 1970 and was amended in 1977 and 1990.
Air quality has significantly improved and ozone levels have decreased 30 percent since 1980, and EPA data shows the trend continuing. America’s air today is cleaner than it has been in generations.
