The Senate passed Wednesday a bill to require many government agencies to come up with plans on how they can help reduce air pollution, and then report and evaluate results.

It voted 27-0 to pass HB168, and sent it to Gov. Gary Herbert for his signature. Herbert has endorsed the bill as part of his efforts to reduce pollution. It is sponsored by Rep. Patrice Arent, D-Millcreek.

That bill would require all state agencies, colleges, school districts, the Legislature and counties not meeting federal clean air standards to come up with plans on how their employees can help reduce pollution, and report back on how well their efforts are working.
