Abstract:
Car and coal-fired power plants account for all of the state's ozone causing nitrogen oxide. To remedy this, the North Carolina General Assembly passed the Ambient Air Quality Improvement Act of 1999. The law expands the current automobile emissions testing program and the number of counties using the program. By 2006, forty-eight counties having 80 percent of all the cars and trucks on the state's roads will be required to use this emissions test. The law is not without its detractors, however.

There are fourteen coal-fired power plants in North Carolina, with Carolina Power and Light and Duke Power having seven each. Rules adopted in October 2000 require these plants to emit 69 percent less nitrogen oxide in five years than currently. The challenge in doing this is whether the aging plants can reduce ozone-causing gases and still keep the power flowing.
