Sept. 24, 2021 (DENVER)—The Colorado Department of Law today released a report from the independent investigation into allegations that staff at the Air Pollution Control Division of the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment did not properly enforce federal air quality standards. The Department of Law appointed the law firm of Troutman Pepper Hamilton Sanders LLP to conduct this independent investigation.
“My department launched this independent investigation because Coloradans need to know that state regulators are properly enforcing air pollution standards to protect air quality. With the conclusion of the investigation, we are releasing this report to apprise the public of the findings of this inquiry and to give CDPHE the information it needs to address concerns raised about the state’s compliance with federal air quality standards and efforts to protect the public health and environment,” Attorney General Phil Weiser said.
