American Lung Association 2008 Comments on Sulfur Dioxide NAAQS

We believe it is the responsibility of the polluters to clean up their emissions so that the air is safe for everyone to breathe, including people with chronic respiratory diseases such as asthma and COPD. 
We believe that pollution control is the first line of defense and that everyone  should be able to safely breathe the outdoor air, without resorting to medication. We know that the most vulnerable members of society are most likely to live near air pollution sources and are least able to bear the harm that pollution causes.
