U.S. EPA seeks tighter ozone standards to cut pollution

WASHINGTON, Nov 26 (Reuters) – The Obama administration on
Wednesday proposed stricter curbs on ground-level ozone, a
pollutant linked to several serious health conditions, in a move
industry groups said would place a heavy burden on the U.S.
economy.

The Environmental Protection Agency said it would set
National Ambient Air Quality Standard between 65 and 70 parts
per billion concentration of ozone and consider public comments
on standards within a 60 to 75 ppb range.
