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.

Hi INSEADIESE,

Option E is a reduced form of
a Clean Air Act that is at least as strong as the present act

The that and the is have been taken out to make the sentence slightly shorter.
