I would go with E

A. a Clean Air Act as strong or stronger than
as strong or stronger is redundant..Short and simple wud be atleast as strong

B. a Clean Air Act that is stronger, or at least so strong as,
Redundant

C. at least as strong a Clean Air Act as is
[color=orange]People prefer a Clean Air Act would be right
Not People prefer atleast as strong a Clean Air act
[/color]

D. a Clean Air Act as strong or stronger than is
Redundant

E. a Clean Air Act at least as strong as
CORRECT

ellipsis by Ron declare that
if the second part contain a form of to be, the first part need to have a form of to be
if the second part contain do/did, the first part need to have action verb
if the secon part contain helping verb, the first part need to have the same helping verb, maybe in different tense.
