Mission for clean air in for the long haul

By Heather Stauffer

Excerpt: “Even coming off a good year, members of the Clean Air Board of Central Pennsylvania (CAB) refuse to be anything but realistic about the probable state of the region’s air in 2020.

Meeting a day after the state senate passed anti-idling legislation, board members acknowledged excitement about the progress of the bill. But, they said, it represents just one battle in the war they are waging on particulate matter.

“If the newspaper gives the impression that the anti-idling alone will solve the problem, it will do a grave disservice,” said Pam Frohman. She is secretary of the faith-based group formed in 2005 after more than 100 area doctors publicized a statement of concern about the area’s level of fine particle pollution from diesel exhaust.”
