100 GENERAL
101 PURPOSE: The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) Federal General Conformity Rule became effective on January 31, 1994. The purpose of this Rule is to implement part of the Federal Clean Air Act Amendments of 1990, Section 176 (c): a federal action must not adversely affect the timely attainment and maintenance of national air quality standards or emission reduction progress plans, cause or contribute to any new violations of an air quality standard or emission reduction progress plan, cause or contribute to any new violations of an air quality standard, increase the frequency or severity of any existing violation, or delay the timely attainment of any standard or required interim emission reductions or milestones in any applicable area.

The Rule requires that State Implementation Plans (SIPs) be revised to incorporate the Rule by November 30, 1994. Therefore, the District is adopting the Federal General Conformity Rule by reference.
102 CODE OF FEDERAL REGULATIONS: The Code of Federal Regulations, Title 40, Chapter I, Subchapter C, Parts 6 and 51 are incorporated herein by this reference and shall apply as if fully set forth herein.
103 APPLICABILITY: The General Conformity Rule applies to federal activities that are not covered by the Transportation Conformity Rule. The Rule covers all "direct" and "indirect" emissions that are "reasonably foreseeable" resulting from a federal action.
