Sporting groups encourage Congress to maintain Clean Air standards

As air pollution continues to remain a problem across the country, more environmental enthusiasts are doing their part to prevent Clean Air legislation from falling out of favor. Recently, more than 330 sporting groups gathered to propose their stance to Congress, according to the Independent Record.

Approximately 30 of these groups were from Montana. The objective was to urge Congress to steer away from lowering carbon emissions standards, which can result in higher amounts of pollution.

"There's nothing hard and fast coming up in Congress, but what happened this spring was it was attached as riders; at the last minute they stick things on bills, without any hearings or public processes," Dave Dittloff, representative from the National Wildlife Federation, told the news source.

Individuals who want to breathe easier may want to consider purchasing an air purifier to remove irritants from their living spaces.
