The U.S. Senate Environment and Public Works Subcommittee on Clean Air and Nuclear Safety is one of four subcommittees of the U.S. Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works.

History

The subcommittee was formerly known as the Subcommittee on Clean Air, Climate Change, and Nuclear Safety, but was renamed during committee organization of the 110th Congress, after responsibility over global warming issues transferred to the Subcommittees on Public Sector Solutions and Subcommittee on Private Sector Solutions to Global Warming. The subcommittee still retains some inherent oversight over global warming issues due to its jurisdiction over the federal Clean Air Act.
