Yes, I think NM should have air pollution ordinances if that sort of thing is going on. One of the things I like most about NM is the transparent night sky. I'd hate for it to become merely translucent, like it is in Ft Worth.

I did a google search for Clean Air Act in New Mexico, and all I found was something about a coal burning electric power plant in the 4 corners area.

I know some states have air quality standards that are only applicable to certain counties where air pollution is a problem.

Am I correct in thinking that New Mexico is exempt from the Federal Clean Air Act?
