Statement Of Sen. Alexander - Designation Of Great Smokies As One Of 10 Most Endangered National Parks By The National Parks Conservation Association

Air quality is not only a health issue — it is a jobs and tourism issue. This is yet another reason why we need national legislation to clean up the air in the Smokies.
