President vetoes law meant to improve air quality

President Václav Klaus has vetoed a law meant to improve air quality by determining zones within municipalities where older bus models, which do not satisfy certain emission standards, would be banned from passing through. The president said he agreed with the Senate’s criticism of the proposal, stating that it was poorly designed and that its implementation may be difficult for towns and cities. The proposal, which was put forward by a group of Moravian and Silesian deputies, was backed by the environment minister, Tomáš Chalupa.
