- Excerpt from NAAQS:

U.S. EPA also plans for a long-awaited review of National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS) for ozone pollution. U.S. EPA has said it is still performing analytical work, and likely won’t propose a rule until late 2014. The previous attempt to tighten the ozone standards was stopped by the White House in 2010 prior to the midterm elections that November. The agency is also considering a NAAQS for lead, which is due to be proposed in July 2014. An implementation rule for the 2012 NAAQS for fine particulate matter (PM 2.5) is scheduled for May of this year.
