Pollution Control Companies to EPA: Don't Approve Dirty Diesel Truck Loophole

The companies that make and sell pollution control equipment are urging the U.S. EPA NOT to re-open a glaring loophole that would permit trucks to pollute 20-40 times more than new trucks.  In response to a Tennessee company and member of Congress, the EPA recently said it might re-open this loophole -- closed under the Obama EPA -- which would give a break to so-called 'glider kits,' which essentially are truck bodies that can use dirty old engines.  We applaud the efforts by the emission control companies to call attention and object to what would be a step back towards dirtier air.
