EPA names 111 counties facing loss of US funds

The federal Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Monday unveiled a list of 111 counties that may lose billions of dollars in highway and construction funds because they do not meet federal air-pollution standards.

States with large numbers of areas reportedly in violation of the Clean Air Act include California, Kentucky, Ohio, and Arizona. The list also includes part of the United States territory of Guam in the Western Pacific. After a 45-day period for comments by state and other interested organizations, the EPA will publish a final list of counties that have failed to meet requirements of the law.
