Buchanan bucking the prez on air quality

U.S. Rep. Vern Buchanan, R-Sarasota, today sent President Bush a letter asking him to reconsider his administration's plans to relax air-quality standards around national parks, including Everglades National Park.

Buchanan “What legacy would we be leaving our children and grandchildren if the sight of our greatest national treasures, such as the Grand Canyon and Yellowstone National Park, were obscured by smog?” Buchanan wrote.
