The Commission advises the Environmental Protection Agency on issues surrounding the movement over long distances of airborne pollutants caused by cars, trucks, powerplants, and factories. With the Agency, the Commission works to develop and implement regional solutions to the ground-level ozone problems affecting citizens in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic regions. For its member states, the Commission provides air pollution assessment and technical support, and facilitates cooperation among states to develop regional pollution reduction strategies. The Commission also helps coordinate reductions in air pollution to meet federal health-based standards for air quality (contained in the National Ambient Air Quality Standard for ground-level ozone).
Government leaders and environmental officials from twelve Northeast and Mid-Atlantic states, the District of Columbia, and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency constitute the Commission. Member states include Connecticut, Delaware, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, and Virginia.
