Legislature Should Approve DEQ Air Toxics Grant

The Lund Report
We owe it to our children whose schools have among the worst air quality in the nation which has the potential to cause unnecessary cancer deaths

OPINION May 20, 2011 – The Ways and Means Committee agenda in Salem on Monday is a topic of great discussion among many concerned Oregon parents.

With the simple act of putting a DEQ grant request on its agenda, the Ways and Means Committee will help Oregon take a giant step closer to cleaner air for our children. This is a DEQ request for federal dollars to provide additional air quality monitoring. No match from Oregon is required. Toxic air near our schools is an Oregon-wide problem, and it's time for Salem to take actions to protect Oregon's children.
