Polish president signs 'anti-smog' law!

President of Poland Andrzej Duda has signed the so-called 'anti-smog' law, marking the culmination of a long-running campaign by Polish Smog Alert.

The law is designed to give local authorities complete sovereignty in deciding whether bans should be implemented regarding such matters as the burning of environmentally unfriendly substances in domestic properties.

The Małopolska regional assembly (sejmik) passed a resolution in 2013 banning the use of solid fuels in Krakow's domestic stoves. However, Poland's Supreme Administrative Court intervened, ruling that such a ban is unconstitutional. The new law further prevents such interventions.
