Beyond Toxics urges you to support health-based air quality regulations. It is critical that the Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) hears from YOU now! Why? We’ve learned industry is pulling out all their tricks to kill the Cleaner Air Oregon initiative, including suing Governor Brown and the DEQ! Polluters want to deprive Oregon of the chance to modernize our air quality laws. Together, we must step up for a healthy environment.
TAKE ACTION: Speak up for Oregon’s air quality!
If you’d like to submit more detailed comments, please send them to:
Or via email:
or via the DEQ web form
See this page for a draft of the new rules, details and online comment site:
