EPA modestly tightens ozone standards after last minute Bush weakening

Earlier I posted articles about the ozone pollution spreading across the open spaces of Wyoming, but also that the EPA was about to tighten the standards nationwide. The EPA did a little bit, but President Bush personally intervened to block tighter seasonal standards, which are the most important because air pollution varies greatly by season due to dispersion pattern changes.
