"House Committee Approves Bill Slowing Ozone Regulations"

"A House committee approved a bill Wednesday slowing the implementation of federal ozone regulations.

The legislation, from Rep. Pete Olson (R-Texas), would instruct the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to update its limits on ozone pollution every 10 years rather than every 5 years, the current timeline.

Supporters of the bill say it would help localities comply with existing ozone standards before federal regulators issue newer, stricter limits on the pollutant."
