Metropolitan Washington Air Quality Committee (MWAQC) Chair and Fall Church Vice Mayor David Snyder appeared with MWAQC Chair, AAA Mid-Atlantic Public Affairs Director Lon Anderson and GW's Dr. Janet Phoenix on NBC4's public affairs talkshow, Viewpoint, last Sunday morning to discuss the state of regional air quality.
