5th District Congresswoman Elizabeth Esty is supporting a petition by Connecticut and 8 other states that would require upwind states to reduce air pollution emissions that are carried to the Northeast by prevailing winds.  Esty says despite Connecticut being a national leader in reducing air pollution, families here still suffer the serious health consequences of pollution.  Esty says air pollution causes an estimated 168 deaths in Connecticut, higher than any other New England state, and more than 470 hospitalizations each year.
