The State of Michigan, pursuant to the Clean Air Act as amended (1977), is required to consider an Inspection/Maintenance (I/M) program for part or all the State because the five-county Detroit metropolitan area, at least, is expected to be unable to meet applicable air quality standards prior to the 1982 deadline. This study evaluates a range of possible I/M program configurations to assist in the identification of a short list of alternatives that would be appropriate in Michigan. The findings of this study are presented in two volumes. Volume II performs a comprehensive evaluation of costs and benefits for a matrix of 24 program configurations differentiated by administrative mode, inspection procedure and scope. As a result of the comparative analysis, a short list of candidate options is proposed for further study.
