Board OKs new clean-air rules

September 25, 2009|Associated Press

California air regulators approved strict regulations Thursday for aerosol air fresheners, paint thinners and solvents as a way to lessen smog-forming emissions and reduce a health threat.

The state Air Resources Board voted 8 to 0 to ban the sale of products that emit high levels of so-called volatile organic compounds, effective Dec. 31, 2013. Regulators say the emissions from those household products increase ozone gas in the atmosphere, a main component of smog.
