Los Angeles officials have voted unanimously to approve stricter enforcement of the federal Clean Air Act, including a provision that requires coal-fired plants to reduce mercury and other toxic air pollution.

Environmental groups applauded the decision, saying ending the use of coal will improve health and bring clean energy jobs to the region.

The EPA estimates the stricter standards will prevent 11,000 deaths and 130,000 asthma attacks annually.
