EPA is promoting new approaches to achieve clean air standards: bubbling, offsetting, banking and emission fees. The programs are flexible, encouraging industry to find the cheapest, most efficient way to reduce pollution and allowing reductions beyond those required to be sold or traded. However, flexible programs are often difficult to administer and some state and local agencies feel that EPA national is burdening them with too many new programs and too little guidance. Included are case histories of the new programs.
