The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is proposing action on a revision to the California Air Resources Board (CARB) portion of the California State Implementation Plan (SIP). This revision concerns emissions of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) from vapor recovery systems of gasoline cargo tanks. We are proposing a limited approval and limited disapproval of a statewide rule to regulate this emission source under the Clean Air Act (CAA or the Act), and are also proposing to approve the recission of a different statewide rule from the California SIP that previously regulated this emission source. We are taking comments on this proposal and plan to follow with a final action.
