There has been much discussion on how to improve the air quality in Utah.

It is generally recognized that about half of the pollutants found in our air are as a result of vehicle emissions. Why doesn't Utah agree to accept the California emissions standards as California and 13 other states (plus D.C.) have done? These standards are more stringent than the EPA standards and are proven to improve air quality.

This simple legislative action won't totally solve our air quality problem, but it would be a large step in the right direction.
