ITEM NO.: 75-2-2 Public Hearing Concerning Proposed Revisions to Coordinated Basinwide Air Pollution Control Plans - Emissions from Gasoline Marketing Operations. RECOMMENDATION To be made after public testimony at the meeting. SUMMARY Eleven districts are required to adopt gasoline marketing vapor recovery rules; the remaining district has scheduled a public hearing to be held on January 27, 1975. Some of the districts' rules deviate from the Board's guidelines. Board action may be required to eliminate these deviations. At the December meeting the Board was advised that before the Board could amend vapor recovery rules adopted by APCDs the basin plans of the South Coast, San Joaquin Valley, and Sacramento Valley Air Basins would have to be revised. This is the public hearing on revision of the basin plans for these three air basins. A notice of public hearing was issued by the staff on December 4, 1974. Since then, the San Joaquin Valley and Sacramento Valley Air Basin Coordinating Councils have filed revisions to their basin plans. The South Coast Air Basin Coordinating Council has indicated that it plans to file a revision by mid-February. The San Joaquin Valley and Sacramento Valley Air Basin revisions, and some of the APCDs' rules are discussed in the staff report. Included in this report are proposed resolutions 75-4, 75-5, and 75-6 which, if adopted, would revise the basin plans of the South Coast, Sacramento Valley, and San Joaquin Valley air basins respectively. The proposed revisions are attached. ATTACHMENTS Proposed Air Resources Board revisions to the South Coast, Sacramento Valley, San Joaquin Valley Air Basin basin plans. Notice of public hearing.

ITEM NO.: 75-2-3 Status Report on Delegation of Authority by EPA for Enforcement of New Source Performance Standards and National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants. RECOMMENDATION This is an informational report. SUMMARY The Clean Air Act requires the Administrator of EPA to establish performance standards for new sources of air pollutants and for sources of hazardous materials. The act also provides that enforcement of these standards may be delegated to the State. The Air Resources Board has requested delegation of authority from EPA for enforcement. EPA has not, however, granted the request because the provision of EPA regulations for delegation need to be fulfilled before enforcement authority is delegated. This report describes the plan for achieving delegation and the current status of the delegation program. After the required local regulations and enforcement procedures are adopted, the ARB plans to request delegation on a district by district basis. ITEM NO.: 75-2-4 Oxidant Calibration Procedures Report. RECOMMENDATION None; this is an informational item. SUMMARY A report on the status of the Oxidant Calibration Committee's progress in the development of recommendations for the instrument calibration procedures to be used in measuring ambient air oxidant levels will be presented by Mr. William DeMore, Chairman of the advisory committee. The Committee's preliminary findings on the accuracy of the methods used by the Los Angeles Air Pollution Control District and the Air Resources Board were discussed at the November 14, 1974 Board meeting.
