Vote Smart's Synopsis:

Vote to pass a bill delaying the compliance date for ground level ozone standards.

Highlights:
  • Authorizes governors in all 50 states to forego the deadlines for ground-level ozone standards specified by the existing 2015 ozone standards under the Clean Air Act (Sec. 2).

  • Requires that all states designate plans for implementing 2015 ozone standards by October 26, 2026 (Sec 2).

  • Increases the interval period for all air pollutant criteria found in the Clean Air Act from 5 to 10 years (Sec. 3).

  • Requires the Administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency to publish reviewed ozone criteria, considering public health and technical and economic feasibility, by October 26, 2025 (Sec. 3).

  • Requires the Administrator of the EPA to collaborate with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration to conduct a peer reviewed study, and submit a report to Congress on the impact of air pollution, the attainment and maintenance of air standards, and any recommendations for policy changes no later than 24 months after the enactment of this bill (Sec. 3).

  • Requires the Administrator to incorporate the study’s results into the implementation of 2015 ozone standards (Sec. 3).

  • Specifies that the 2015 ozone standards shall not apply to the application or review of a preconstruction permit if the application was complete on or before the final designation date for an area of land selected, or within 60 days afterwards (Sec. 2).

  • Defines “preconstruction permit” as a permit that is required for the construction or modification of any stationary source, including any permit issued by the EPA or any other state, local, or tribal permitting authority (Sec. 3).

  • Prohibits additional funds from being appropriated for this act, and prohibits sanctions or fees on states failing to attain ambient air quality standards for ozone or particulate matter (Secs. 4 & 6).

  • Specifies that this bill does not limit states, local governments, and tribal authorities from imposing more stringent measures with their own laws (Sec. 3).

  • Exempts areas classified as “Extreme Ozone Nonattainment Areas” from the provisions of this bill (Sec. 3).
