Public Comments

Delivering public comments to regulators is a crucial component of what GASP does. When federal, state, or local changes to regulations are proposed, stakeholders generally have a window of time wherein they can submit comments and have the regulators read and respond to them. GASP delivers comments in person when possible, and in writing, often submitting more detailed written comments than those we present verbally.

Giving comments makes a great impact. Please contact us if you wish to deliver comments on upcoming regulations, need help crafting your comments, or even if you want to carpool to deliver comments together.

Learn more by reading through our 
Citizen Handbook for making effective comments on air quality issues.
