"A lot of concerns have been brought up," Martinez said. "I think it's something that is extremely legitimate. If it's something that affects and has a risk on health, has a risk on lifestyles, has a risk of potentially hurting children because of the air quality, it's something we need to definitely look at."

Martinez is asking the state's top environmental agency to host a public meeting in September.
