Members of Congress Send Letter to President Biden to Overhaul HVAC Systems in Schools

On February 8, Congresswoman Doris Matsui (D-CA) and 29 of her House colleagues sent a letter to President Biden asking him to create a program to overhaul HVAC systems in schools "...with a special eye towards environmental justice and low-wealth communities which are disproportionately affected by toxic air pollution." The letter also asks for upgrades to "meet ventilation and filtration recommendations for reopening schools set forth by the World Health Organization, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE)."
