STATE AND REGIONAL IMPLEMENTATION OF CAAA AND ISTEA

The new strategy of pollution reduction developed in CAAA of 1990 and ISTEA depends heavily on states and regions meeting three institutional and political challenges: (1) Enhancing organizational capacity in the core agencies -- state air quality and transportation agencies and Metropolitan Planning Organizations (MPOs) -- responsible for carrying out the federal clean air mandates; (2) Creating effective state and regional policy making arenas in which to frame and assess alternative policy options and make choices; (3) Securing public consent for the clean air policies that are adopted. This study of CAAA implementation in ten non-attainment areas, partially summarized here, shows varying degrees of success in meeting these challenges.
