PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

Oregon House Speaker Tina Kotek hosted a north Portland air quality community meeting Monday evening. 

In the meeting, state leaders and the Department of Environmental Quality discussed the preliminary results found in air samples taken from the Swan Island area.

One of the biggest problems facing that area is emissions from diesel engines, including arsenic.

State leaders have been working toward ways to move the state away from older diesel engines and toward a cleaner future.
