In a session that was marred with partisan squabbling, lawmakers in Augusta did agree on one thing, making clean air for Maine a priority.Tuesday at the state house, lawmakers, students, and representatives from the American Lung Association celebrated a joint resolution passed by state lawmakers asking congress and the president to protect the clean air act from roll-backs.The resolution also asks congress to fund the air monitoring and pollution efforts that help keep Maine’s air clean.”Smokestacks and tailpipes to the south and west of us are sending dangerous toxins like carbon, mercury, arsenic and lead across the border while Maine people face consequences that include asthma attacks, heart disease and cancer,” said Edward Miller, American Lung Association.During the ceremony, the resolution was given to a representative for Senator Susan Collins who will take it back to Washington.
