The EPA is proposing to remove Ohio's nuisance provision, a critical tool in protecting against air pollution in Ohio. The deadline to submit comments to the EPA opposing the elimination of the nuisance provision has been extended to May 22.
All of us deserve to live in clean, safe and healthy communities.
Stop the rollback of Ohio's clean air protections and submit a comment today.
We're 0.0% of the way to our goal, help us get there!

I oppose the rollback of the nuisance provision of Ohio’s Clean Air Act regulations.
The nuisance provision allows Ohio residents to take local pollution problems into their own hands and protect their communities by taking polluters to court. Without this provision, it will be more difficult for Ohioans to address local pollution problems. Eliminating this provision also destroys an important tool that gives both regulators and Ohio residents flexibility to address serious health concerns based on new scientific developments.
The EPA should do its job by enforcing current environmental protections -- not eliminate much-needed protections we already have.
