The NSW Environment Minister Matt Kean proposed the Clean Air Strategy in March this year.
The draft proposal has since received backlash from several cabinet ministers, on concern the bill will stigmatise regional communities who rely on coal for their local economies.
Minister Kean maintains that the bill seeks to introduce measures to ensure clean air in the state of NSW.
Tina Quinn spoke with Minister Kean about the backlash and concerns the federal government will continue to set unambitious emissions targets, following last weeks damning IPCC report.
