The Mid-Atlantic/Northeast Visibility Union (MANE-VU) was formed by the Mid-Atlantic and Northeastern states, tribes, and federal agencies to coordinate regional haze planning activities for the region. MANE-VU was formed to encourage a coordinated approach to meeting the requirements of EPAs regional haze rules and reducing visibility impairment in major national parks and wilderness areas in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic region. MANE-VU provides technical assessments and assistance to its members, evaluates linkages to other regional air pollution issues, provides a forum for discussion, and encourages coordinated actions. MANE-VU also facilitates coordination with other regions. MANE-VUs structure includes a board comprised of state and tribal Commissioners/Secretaries, air program directors and two committees comprised of agency personnel: a Technical Support committee to assess the nature of regional haze, the sources that contribute to regional haze and the technical tools that states will use to develop their programs and a Communications Committee to develop outreach messages and approaches.
