Late last week (June 6-10, 2016) the House approved Farm Bureau-supported H.R. 4775, the Ozone Standards Implementation Act of 2016, by a vote of 234-177.

H.R. 4775 would provide for the reasonable implementation for the 2015 NAAQS for ozone, streamline the air permitting process and institute other reforms to federal air quality standards.
