The Source: Will AACOG Funding Freeze Impact San Antonio Air?
The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) has frozen nearly $200,000 slotted for air improvement programs at the Alamo Area Council of Governments (AACOG) for publicly posting a study the state's environmental regulator had funded without TCEQ review.
With the city teetering on the precipice of non-attainment with the Clean Air Act -- and the threat of additional mandatory regulations on cars, trucks and ozone producers -- why is the funding being frozen now?
TCEQ declined to participate in today's segment, but provided a statement highlighting the commission's continuing air quality projects in the area, including a new air quality monitor in Floresville. The TCEQ also provided the final overview of the AACOG report.
