A number of environmental bills are working their way through the state legislature, and Nola.com/The Times Picayune’s Tristan Baurick is following them.

One bill, swiftly cast aside by the House Natural Resources committee, would have required the state’s most frequent air quality violators to install pollution monitoring systems to track emissions and alert nearby communities.

Baurick talks with WWNO’s Tegan Wendland about how the legislature voted this week.
