Analysis Of Costs And Benefits Of A National Low-Emission Vehicle Program.

This report is a supporting document for a Regulatory Impact Analysis (RIA) for a LEV program to be implemented nationwide. It provides estimates of emission reductions, cost, and potential small business impact (RFA). This report compares and contrasts two potential motor vehicle emission control scenarios: (1) continuation of the Federal Motor Vehicle Emission Control Program with Tier I exhaust emission standards in all States except the OTR States, where either the OTC-LEV or CAL-LEV programs apply, and (2) a national LEV in all States.
