EPA Processing of State Air Quality Plans

EPA regularly receives requests by the states to make changes to their existing air quality plans or to create new plans. Once received, EPA reviews these changes and makes a determination as to whether the changes meet current federal regulations. These determinations are then published in the Federal Register stating what action is being taken and the reasoning behind it.
