Fact Sheet - Direct Final Rule Revisions to Federal Implementation Plans to Reduce Interstate Transport of Fine Particulate Matter and Ozone – Part II

EPA is taking direct final action on several additional revisions to the final Cross‐State Air Pollution Rule (CSAPR). In a separate but related action today, the Agency also finalized technical revisions to the CSAPR that were proposed on October 6, 2011. In that proposal, EPA requested additional comment regarding state budgets and today’s direct final rule addresses comments received during that public comment process.

Like the revisions rule, this direct final rule will provide important and consistent technical adjustments to the CSAPR programs in certain states. No changes will be made to the core elements of the program through this action.
