ABSTRACT
The article discusses the impact of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) proposal to lower ozone emission standards in North Texas transportation projects. According to the author, Texas has historically failed to meet national air quality standard for ozone. With the state's growing population and changing attitude on public transportation, funding highway expansion and public transportation projects will be the key issues in lowering emission in order to meet the new EPA standards.
