“The Obama administration is expected to release on Wednesday a contentious and long-delayed environmental regulation to curb emissions of ozone, a smog-causing pollutant linked to asthma, heart disease and premature death,” the New York Times reports.

Such regulations, released under the authority of the Clean Air Act, have become a hallmark of President Obama’s administration.”
