Recent Developments in Indoor Air Quality Policy


ELI tracks policy developments nationwide related to indoor air quality (IAQ) in schools, homes, and other buildings. This page, updated occasionally throughout the year, highlights some of the notable recent developments in enacted IAQ laws and regulations around the country. The focus is at the state level, but significant federal and local policies may be included as well.

Indoor air quality is a broad subject, encompassing many different pollutant sources, activities, and building types. The following IAQ-related policies are only a sampling of recent developments. Other ELI materials provide and update more extensive listings of state IAQ policies on some issues – see our Database of State IAQ Laws for a broad collection of IAQ laws, our Topics in School Environmental Health resource for state laws on nine different school IAQ topics, and our Policy Briefs covering several evolving IAQ policy issues.
