Lung Association poll: big majority says Congress should let EPA do its job and protect the air

The results are overwhelmingly favorable towards the position of defending EPA’s authority to protect public health.

Key highlights include:

· 69 percent think the EPA should update Clean Air Act standards with stricter limits on air pollution;

· 68 percent feel that Congress should not stop the EPA from updating Clean Air Act standards;

· And a bipartisan 69 percent majority believe that EPA scientists, rather than Congress, should set pollution standards.
