The Federal Air Pollution Program.
National Air Pollution Control Administration (DHEW), Washington, DC.
Described is the Federal air pollution program as it was in 1967. The booklet is divided into these major topics: History of the Federal Program; Research; Assistance to State and Local Governments; Abatement and Prevention of Air Pollution; Control of Motor Vehicle Pollution; Information and Education; and Conclusion. Federal legislation has established that State and local governments have the primary responsibility for dealing with community air pollution problems, with Federal leadership and support. Federal research concentrates on two broad areas--the effects of air pollution on health and property, and the improvement of air pollution measurement. Progress is being made as State and local control efforts have expanded greatly, and there are signs of a general increased interest in prevention and control of air pollution. (PR)
