The article reports on the differing opinions toward the proposed smog reductions in the U.S. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) calls for decreasing ground level ozone from the standard of 84 parts per billion (ppb) to between 70 and 75 ppb. The proposed revisions would affect two types of ozone standards, referring to the protection of public health and the environment. Trade industries say that tighter standards are too much. Environmental advocates lament that the cut is not enough.
