Professor Frank Publishes Op-ed on New EPA Regulations

On March 11, the Los Angeles and San Francisco editions of the Daily Journal published an opinion piece by Professor of Environmental Practice Richard Frank analyzing the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's issuance of a new nationwide rule requiring dramatic reductions in permissible levels of sulfur in gasoline marketed and burned in the United States.  Frank's article applauded the dramatic public health and environmental benefits likely to be achieved by the new EPA regulation, and noted that the federal standard is modeled on a California state regulation that required the same reduced gasoline sulfur level several years ago.

Frank, a 1974 graduate of King Hall, is a leader in the field of environmental law and the founding Director of the California Environmental Law and Policy Center at UC Davis School of Law.
