This document provides additional background and analyses demonstrating that the Clean Air InterState Rule (CAIR) cap and trade program for EGUs would result in greater overall visibility improvement than BART for EGUs, and would not result in visibility degradation at any Class I area. Section IX.C. of the Notice of Final Rulemaking (NFR) of the Clean Air InterState Rule (CAIR) discusses the regulatory context of this demonstration, noting that a determination whether CAIR achieves greater progress than BART is contingent upon the finalization of the proposed guidelines for implementing BART (to be finalized by April 15, 2005, under a consent decree), as well as finalization of the criteria for evaluating alternative programs to BART.
