Families for Clean Air’s Comments on the New EPA Wood Burning Rule
The EPA’s proposed rule on wood burning devices has generated significant media attention, controversy, and misinformation (most of it created intentionally).
The public comment period on the proposed rule ended on May 5, 2014, and the EPA now has nine months to finalize the new rule (found here).
The proposed rule was issued in the wake of lawsuits brought by several states and public health organizations. The lawsuits charged that current federal standards were not adequately protecting people from the pollution produced by wood burning devices.
While Families for Clean Air appreciates that the proposed EPA rule addresses some shortcomings of the existing rule, serious concerns remain. You can find out what these concerns are by reading the comments that Families for Clean Air submitted to the EPA.
We urge you to give FCA’s comments a read.
