Business Groups Target EPA Smog Proposal With Ad Blitz

Posted:

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP)- A multimillion-dollar advertising blitz that takes aim at the federal government's smog reduction proposal will be hitting the air waves in more states.
    
The National Association of Manufacturers will be airing a new 30-second commercial starting Wednesday in New Mexico, Virginia and Washington, D.C. The campaign will continue through Oct. 1.
    
The Obama administration plans to finalize its ozone regulation by Oct. 1. The Environmental Protection Agency is proposing an emission limit of 65 to 70 parts per billion, saying a reduction will save lives and cut emergency-room visits.
    
The New Mexico Association of Commerce and Industry is among those opposed. The group says the price tag for compliance in New Mexico could top $5 billion and result in an $8 billion loss in gross state product by 2040.
