Regulations for Emissions from Vehicles and Engines

Final Rule on Ozone Transport Commission; Low Emission Vehicle Program for the Northeast Ozone Transport Region

Rule Summary

Final determination that reduction of new motor vehicle emissions throughout the Northeast Ozone Transport Region (OTR) is necessary to mitigate the effects of air pollution transport and to bring nonattainment areas in the OTR into attainment (including maintenance) of the national ambient air quality standard for tropospheric ozone (smog). This action approved the recommendation of the Ozone Transport Commission (OTC) and promulgated a rule under sections 184 and 110 of the Clean Air Act that required emission reductions from new motor vehicles in the OTR equivalent to the reductions that would be achieved by the OTC Low Emission Vehicle (OTC LEV) program.
