7 The data derive from detailed descriptions of air toxics programs in response to a survey by the State and Territorial Air Pollution Program Administrator (STAPPA 1989).
9 The program descriptions in the STAPPA (1989) survey do not indicate any consideration of cost or technical feasibility in setting standards.
Of the 55 STAPPA agencies, 48 (87%) responded to the questionnaire; of the 170 ALAPCO agencies, 149 (88%) responded (overall response rate: 88%).
According to STAPPA and ALAPCO, the report details the results of an analysis conducted using EPA methodology for calculating health impacts to quantify the adverse health effects associated with locomotive and marine diesel emissions.
STAPPA and ALAPCO noted that they have transmitted the report to EPA administrator Stephen Johnson, urging the agency to propose and finalize standards to reduce emissions from locomotive and marine diesel engines by at least 90 percent, with full implementation in effect by 2011.
According to STAPPA and ALAPCO, the associations expressed in the letter disappointment that the five-year-long process had "not resulted in any progress" toward reducing aircraft emissions.
STAPPA and ALAPCO said, in withdrawing from the stakeholder process, the associations also formally rejected the airport ground service equipment (GSE) agreement, a memorandum of understanding proposed this summer that focused only on nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions, which they claim was "not only inadequate in scope and stringency, but also placed unacceptable constraints on state and local air agencies' abilities to protect the public from the adverse health impacts associated with aviation-related pollution."
