The Clean Air Amendments of 1970 are explained, the first steps in determining a community's air pollution problems are outlined, the basic components of an implementation plan are specified, national and state standards of performance and hazardous air pollutant standards are discussed, and auto emission controls are described. The pamphlet also includes a discussion of the citizen's legal rights, economic considerations, and the citizen's role in policy-making.
