According to a recent Courier-Journal article,
district officials in Louisville are amending some of the requirements of the pollution reports that local companies must provide. The new document will require that the city's biggest polluters follow all the measures laid out in the 2005 document while smaller companies will see some reprieve. According to the article, this is an effort by district officials to "make life easier on businesses, as well as their staff, while retaining the core requirements of the 2005 program that was adopted after studies confirmed excessive levels of certain chemicals in the city's air."
There is a 30-day public comment period on the proposed changes, ending Dec. 20.
