Outgoing EPA air chief Holmstead looks back at his successes during agency tenure

After announcing his resignation from the top air pollution post at the U.S. EPA in July, Jeffrey Holmstead takes a look back at his four years at the agency. In a wide-ranging OnPoint interview, Holmstead -- assistant administrator for the agency's Office of Air and Radiation -- points to notable successes during his time at EPA, including progress on the Clean Air Interstate Rule and non-road diesel regulations. But he also laments Congress' inability to pass "Clear Skies" legislation and looks ahead to future fights over the controversial air pollution bill, Bush administration efforts on climate change and New Source Review litigation. This episode of OnPoint was taped on August 4, 2005.
