EPA/AR RIN: 2060-AQ12 Publication ID: Spring 2010 
Title: ●Tier II Light-Duty Vehicle and Light-Duty Truck Emission Standards and Gasoline Sulfur Standards(Section 610 Review) 
Abstract: On February 10, 2000 (65 FR 6698), EPA promulgated a regulation to require emission standards for light-duty vehicles and light-duty trucks through lowering tailpipe emission standards. Specifically, EPA sought to reduce emissions of nitrogen oxides and non-methane hydrocarbons, pollutants which contribute to ozone pollution. The rulemaking also provided limitations on the sulfur content of gasoline available nationwide. Sulfur in gasoline has a detrimental impact on catalyst performance and could be a limiting factor in the introduction of advanced technologies on motor vehicles. Pursuant to section 610 of the Regulatory Flexibility Act, on February 19, 2010, EPA initiated a review of this rule to determine if it should be continued without change, or should be rescinded or amended to minimize adverse economic impacts on small entities (75 FR 7426). As part of this review, EPA is considering, and has solicited comments on, the following factors: (1) The continued need for the rule; (2) the nature of complaints or comments received concerning the rule; (3) the complexity of the rule; (4) the extent to which the rule overlaps, duplicates, or conflicts with other Federal, State, or local government rules; and (5) the degree to which technology, economic conditions, or other factors have changed in the area affected by the rule. The results of EPA's review will be summarized in a report and placed in the docket EPA-HQ-OAR-2010-0052. This docket can be accessed at
