April 24 marks the 20th anniversary of the American Lung Association’s State of the Air report. The goal of the report is to identify unhealthy air in cities and counties around the country.

Last year, the Phoenix area was on the list of most ozone-polluted cities.

JoAnna Strother, regional director of public policy for American Lung Association in the Southwest Region, spoke with The Show to discuss this year’s report.
