To meet looming federal deadlines, the region must slash emissions by more than half in the next several years. But how and where will the $14 billion needed to do so come from?

We’ve built an interactive tool to illustrate the smog funding shortfall -- and what it would take to fix it. How would you raise $14 billion to make our air cleaner?  https://lat.ms/2RNm15I
