Editorial Reviews

Critically examines the EPA's new stricter standards for levels of particulate matter and ozone. Argues that the EPA's scientific studies and reasoning are flawed. Suggests that allowing the standards to go through will allow the EPA unwarranted expansion of its regulatory power at the cost of farmers and ranchers.
