The National Tribal Air Association’s STAR is an annual publication intended to provide an understanding of the importance and impact of Tribal air programs. Nationally vetted Tribal needs, priorities, and recommendations are all outlined, and the successes and challenges experienced by the environmental professionals are highlighted by way of personal narratives submitted by the Tribes themselves. A budget analysis appendix is included in each edition of the STAR, and over the years a variety of other appendices have served to underscore important and relevant topics.
This report provides national leadership with recommendations on how to improve air quality in and around Tribal communities while detailing the successes and challenges of Tribal Air Quality Programs and the connections between air pollution, public health, and Tribes. There are many references to oil and gas development and additional valuable information.
