The News & Observer examines the controversy surrounding the Enviormental Protection Agency's proposed tough clean-air regulations. An industry group of 500-plus utilities and manufactures protesting the EPA regulations claim that "they will take a big bite out of our wallets wihout helping us breathe better." Public-health advocates concede that the tightened standards carry at least a $6.5 billion price tag, but the compliance cost will be transfered to consumers. Plus, the supporters claim, the higher prices are "a fair trade-off for the mother who no longer has to rush her asthmatic child to the emergency room and for the elderly person who can enjoy a few more years of life."
