Designating the issue a 'disaster' allows the government to use 2.65 billion USD of its reserve funds to help respond to any damage or emergency caused by polluted air. Other bills that were passed included the mandate that every school classroom should have an air purifier and removal of a limit on sales of liquefied petroleum gas vehicles.
