For Immediate Release May 14, 1999


We are deeply disappointed by the Court of Appeals' ruling today on clean air standards, particularly given the court's explicit recognition that there is a strong scientific and public health rationale for tougher air quality protections. We will continue to do everything within our power to ensure that the American people are adequately protected against smog, soot, and other harmful air pollutants. The Administration is studying the ruling closely and will decide in the near future on a specific course of action.
