    Clean Arr Act(1963): Dealt with reducing air pollution by setting emissions standards for stationary sources such as power plants and steel mills. lt did not take into account mobile sources ol air pollution, which had become the largest source of many dangerous pollutants. lt also standards for auto emissions, expanded local air pollution programs, established air quality control regions (AQC8), set air quality standards and compliance deadlines for stationary source emissions, and authorized research on low-emissions fuels and automobiles.

It was soon discovered that the deadlines set were overly ambitious (especially those for auto emissions). To reach these standards in such a short period of time. the auto industry laced serious economic limitations and seemingly insurmountable technological challenges. Over the next decade. the legislation was once again amended to extend these deadlines and to mandate states to revise their implementation plans
