EPA explains why it didn't tighten acid-rain standards

EPA last April opted not to tighten its secondary National Ambient Air Quality Standards for nitrogen oxides (NOx) and sulfur dioxides (SO2), which are designed to address environmental "welfare" such as aquatic ecosystems under the Clean Air Act.
