EPA/AR RIN: 2060-AL84 Publication ID: Spring 2010 
Title: Lifting the Stay of the 8-Hour Portion of the Findings of Significant Contribution and Rulemaking for Purposes of Reducing Interstate Ozone Transport ("NOx SIP Call") 
Abstract: In the Nitrogen Oxides State Implementation Plan Call (NOx SIP Call) (63 FR 57356, October 27, 1998), EPA found that emissions of NOx from 22 States and the District of Columbia (hereinafter referred to as "23 States") significantly contribute to downwind areas' nonattainment of the 1-hour ozone NAAQS. EPA also separately found that NOx emissions from the same 23 States significantly contribute to downwind nonattainment of the 8-hour ozone NAAQS. Subsequently, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit (D.C. Circuit) remanded the 8-hour ozone NAAQS. [American Trucking Associations, Inc. v. EPA, 175 F.3d 1027 on rehearing 195 F.3d 4 (D.C. Cir. 1999).] EPA stayed the 8-hour basis of the NOx SIP Call rule on September 18, 2000 (65 FR 56245), based on the uncertainty created by the D.C. Circuit's decision. EPA has now completed the actions necessary to address the aforementioned remand, and therefore is now conducting rulemaking to lift the stay. EPA is proposing to lift the stay of our findings in the NOx SIP Call contained in 40 CFR sec 51.121(a)(2), related to the 8-hour ozone NAAQS. This action does not create any new requirements; it merely reinstitutes a requirement of the NOx SIP Call that had previously been stayed.
