Louisville Becomes Trendsetter on Air Quality
The program, with regulations surpassing EPA standards, recognizes that clean air is an asset that will attract business and residents to the area. And with a phased-in six-year plan for improving Louisville’s air, companies can know exactly what to expect and what it will cost.
The STAR program is a win-win that sets a national standard. Everybody wins when community health is improved and health care costs go down. Everybody wins when quality of life improves and more families and businesses decide to call that place home. Legislators across the country should pay close attention to how Louisville and Jefferson County thrive, and then take their lead from “The City of Parks’” courageous, commonsense plans for a healthy community.
