Clean Air Act Compliance

Initially passed in 1970 and amended several times since, the federal Clean Air Act has had a significant impact on the way businesses and communities are allowed to operate and expand. As complex environmental laws restrict decisions by public corporation executives, small business owners and municipal entities, more and more violation cases are being challenged in the state and federal courts.
