Federal "Good Neighbor Plan" for the 2015 Ozone National Ambient Air Quality Standards (Draft)
Jun. 12, 2023
This action finalizes Federal Implementation Plan (FIP) requirements to address 23 states' obligations to eliminate significant contribution to nonattainment, or interference with maintenance, of the 2015 ozone NAAQS in other states. The EPA is taking this action under the "good neighbor" or "interstate transport" provision of the CAA. The Agency is defining the amount of ozone-precursor emissions (specifically, nitrogen oxides) that constitute significant contribution to nonattainment and interference with maintenance from these 23 states. With respect to fossil fuel-fired power plants in 22 states, this action will prohibit those emissions by implementing an allowance-based trading program beginning in the 2023 ozone season. With respect to certain other industrial stationary sources in 20 states, this action will prohibit those emissions through emissions limitations and associated requirements beginning in the 2026 ozone season. This final rule is effective on 4 August 2023.
