The Dallas Business Journal reports a "15-story package focused on a looming federal deadline for the Dallas-Fort Worth area to clean up its breathing air. The EPA is demanding that Dallas reduce ground-level ozone, which is caused by emissions of nitrous oxide (or "NOx") and volatile organic compounds (or "VOC's"). If Dallas fails to meet EPA standards, the federal government may impose tough sanctions that could choke off the area's 10-year-long economic boom."
