EPA has finalized the nitrogen oxides (NOx) State implementation plan (SIP) call rule. The 'NOx SIP call' requires selected eastern States to take actions to reduce emissions of NOx that contribute to nonattainment of ozone standards in downwind States. This Regulatory Impact Analysis (RIA) and associated analyses are intended to generally inform the public about the potential costs and economic impacts that may result from this scenario. At the same time that EPA promulgates the NOx SIP call, EPA is proposing NOx Federal implementation plans (FIPs) that may be needed if any State fails to comply with the final NOx SIP call. EPA is also proposing a response to Section 126 petitions which were filed by eight northeastern States asking EPA to address air pollution transported from upwind States. Pursuant to Executive Order 12866, this RIA presents the potential costs and economic impacts of these rulemakings.
