(03/06/03) The EPA is partnering with the Greater Houston Partnership to sponsor a hands-on workshop “Clearing the Path to Clean Air: Strategic and Technological Innovations for Ozone State Implementation Plan (SIP) Development.” This workshop to be held March 12 through March 14, 2003 in Arlington, Va., is for local and state officials, chamber of commerce and business leaders, environmental and health advocates, as well as transportation and environmental planners to learn how to apply innovative strategies and technologies to develop a successful SIP. Stakeholders and members of the Clean Air Act Advisory Committee provided extensive direction for the development and content of the workshop. Participants will have the opportunity to work in a small group to develop a practice SIP to reinforce the information presented at the workshop by leading experts and top regulatory officials. Participants will also network with EPA regional and national officials who play a key role in SIP development and approval. The workshop will be meeting EPA Administrator Whitman’s goal of producing a showcase for innovative solutions and strategies. For more information on the workshop see:
