Start Preamble

AGENCY:

Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION:

Proposed rule.

SUMMARY:

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is proposing to approve a revision to the California State Implementation Plan (SIP) consisting of California Air Resources Board regulations establishing standards and other requirements relating to the control of emissions from new on-road and new and in-use off-road vehicles and engines. The EPA is proposing to approve these regulations because the regulations meet the applicable requirements of the Clean Air Act. Approval of the regulations as part of the California SIP would make them federally enforceable.

DATES:

Any comments on this proposal must arrive by April 20, 2017.
