I know that Harmon has deadlines, but I’m hoping there is a follow up story that includes how many people showed up at the 7:00 session to talk about their worries about poor air quality, which is getting worse, and will only continue on that trend unless we think carefully about what we put into the air. With projections of 250,00 people living in the Valley and a sure to come again boom time, we need to have regulations that focus on the health of the people who live here.

Is Harmon just lazy or a poor reporter? He reported only the preferential time slot musings of industry. Public comment was allocated 7 pm with minutes restriction. Harmon could have gotten the other points of view. Poor air quality can kill, and for this we should put up with marginal performing or bad cheap practices. Because it isn’t economically feasible isn’t a reason to allow harmful pollution to go on for marginal operation.”... overshoot and have everbody in violation?” Ludlam asked. He knows that is just an inflammatory question with no substance. The commission carefully review all the regulations to the pros and cons of impacts, costs and all aspects before implementing new rules.And Simmons worrying about economy over health pushing a problem to another area after Rio Blanco suffered a major ozone problem this last winter. Of course the irony of this whole hearing and process was the point that Grand Junction was under alert for poor air quality for this day!
