Nation IN BRIEF : VIRGINIA : State to Follow EPA Air Pollution Rules

From Times Staff and Wire Reports

Virginia will avoid Environmental Protection Agency sanctions by complying with its demand to devise a new method of testing vehicle emissions. The state will do whatever it takes to avoid a shutdown of northern Virginia road projects, including $132 million in road improvements for Disney's planned America theme park, state Transportation Secretary Robert Martinez said. The EPA threatened to halt the projects if the state does not submit a suitable plan.
