Rule/Notice/NOFO: EPA, Locomotives and Locomotive Engines; Preemption of State and Local Regulations
Federal Register/Notice: govinfo.gov
Type of Requirement: Final Rule
Description: EPA is finalizing revisions to its regulations addressing preemption of State and local regulation of locomotives and engines used in locomotives. This rule implements a policy change to no longer categorically preempt certain State regulations of non-new locomotives and engines, aligning with the plain text of the Clean Air Act and better achieving the legislative intent of providing for exclusive Federal regulation of new locomotives and new locomotive engines while preserving the ability of California and other States to adopt and enforce certain State standards regulating non-new locomotives and engines.
How is it enforced by FTA, DOT, Direct grant requirement, triennial review or other? EPA enforces these requirements through its inspection program.
Is there a cost or time impact to grantees (best estimate): TBD
