Title: Indian Tribes: Air Quality Planning and Management 
Abstract: The Clean Air Act of 1990 requires EPA to promulgate regulations identifying those provisions of the CAA for which it is appropriate to treat tribes in the same manner as States. For the provisions specified, a Tribe may develop and implement one or more of its own air quality programs. In addition to specifying the CAA provisions for which it is appropriate to treat Tribes in the same manner as States, the rule also establishes the requirements that Indian Tribes must meet if they choose to seek such treatment, and provides for awards of Federal financial assistance to the Tribes.
