Abstract : Title IV of the Clean Air Act Amendments of 1989, would build in existing State control of interstate air pollution control agencies programs by requiring those agencies to submit to the Administrator of EPA comprehensive programs for permitting stationary sources. By The Bush Administration air legislation proposal was focused on three areas; acid rain, urban ozone, and hazardous pollutants. The permit provision was added after suggestion by an interagency group that a state permitting system similar to that used in water pollution control be added to control air emissions. Under the system envisioned, state governments would issue air permits based on "best engineering judgment."
