Title: H. R. 4567: a bill to amend the Clean Air Act to reduce acid deposition, and for other purposes. Introduced in the House of Representatives, Ninety-Ninth Congress, Second Session, April 10, 1986

Abstract

The Acid Deposition Control Act of 1986 amends the Clean Air Act by adding new sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxides emission controls for utilities and industrial boilers which contribute to the acid deposition problem. The bill calls upon states to identify stationary pollutant sources and to establish compliance schedules. It also provides for the imposition of fees, penalties, and civil actions pertaining to the generation and importation of electric power. An interest subsidy program protects ratepayers from bearing excessive costs of pollution control equipment. Changes in the New Source Performance Standards affect utility boilers and smelters. Title II changes emission standards for mobile sources, specifically certain trucks and diesel fuels. Title II calls for cooperation from Canada and Mexico in protecting the border environment.
