California has the most stringent environmental policies. Building projects and manufactured goods must not only pass National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) stipulations but also CEQA (California Environmental Quality Act) standards (which are more environmentally protective than NEPA standards), to be approved. California’s poor air quality, seemingly endless sprawl, and huge population spawned the stringency of their environmental policies.
What’s even more ironic is that California still has some of the worst pollution in the country. Even with such strict environmental policies, pollution is still a major problem in the state. The main problem is ozone/smog levels being too high for what is considered safe. The almost endless amount of cars and factories are still a major threat to clean air in California.
