The Colorado Air Quality Control Commission (AQCC) kicked off a rulemaking hearing on Regulation 29 this morning to consider proposals to cut harmful emissions from gas-powered lawn and garden equipment. CoPIRG Foundation calls on our air quality leaders to adopt the stronger “alternate” proposal before them so we can cut as much pollution from dirty, loud gas-powered lawn mowers and leaf blowers and other handheld tools as quickly as possible. Our health and quality of life depend on it.
