Gianforte Slams EPA Rule Air Quality Standards

(Helena, MT) — Governor Greg Gianforte is criticizing a new federal rule he says will impact Montana and other western states. In a statement yesterday, Gianforte blasted the new Environmental Protection Agency regulation over air quality standards. The regulation puts a firmer grip on particulate matter, but Gianforte believes it “ignores progress and regional concerns.” The governor also thinks the EPA is “creating red tape” and “stifling the economy” with the new policy. Gianforte’s comments were part of a coalition of governors blasting the regulation, arguing wildfires are the main cause of the particulate matter in question.
