First-ever nationwide emissions standards for power plants.

In 2011, the Environmental Protection Agency moved ahead with efforts to significantly reduce mercury, soot and smog pollution from power plants. We expect these standards to save up to 46,000 lives nationwide. Together with our national coalition, we helped mobilize more than 800,000 people across the country to contact the EPA in support of safer emissions standards—no other EPA rule has ever received so much support. Environment Ohio Advocate, Julian Boggs, released our "Danger in the Air" report as part of our effort to ensure these rules were adopted.
