The Ozone Transport Commission was created in 1991 to address the regionwide spread of ozone and its precursor gases from state to state. First known as the Northeast Ozone Transport Commission, it became the Ozone Transport Commission under by-laws adopted in 1991.

In accordance with the federal Clean Air Act amendments of 1990, the Commission assesses the degree of interstate transport of ozone and its precursors in the northeastern United States (P.L. 101-549, sec. 184). To mitigate interstate pollution, the Commission develops strategies and recommends to the Administrator of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency measures to ensure that states in the region attain and maintain the National Ambient Air Quality Standard for ozone.

The Commission is comprised of government leaders and environmental officials from twelve northeast and mid-Atlantic states, the District of Columbia, and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. Member states include Connecticut, Delaware, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, and Virginia.
