Rules Regulations. 29 (A) The Board, pursuant to procedures prescribed in 30 Title VII of this Act, may adopt regulations to promote the 31 purposes of this Title. Without limiting the generality of 32 this authority, such regulations may among other things 33 prescribe: HB3009 Engrossed -4- LRB9109978ACtm 1 (a) Ambient air quality standards specifying the 2 maximum permissible short-term and long-term 3 concentrations of various contaminants in the atmosphere; 4 (b) Emission standards specifying the maximum 5 amounts or concentrations of various contaminants that 6 may be discharged into the atmosphere; 7 (c) Standards for the issuance of permits for 8 construction, installation, or operation of any 9 equipment, facility, vehicle, vessel, or aircraft capable 10 of causing or contributing to air pollution or designed 11 to prevent air pollution; 12 (d) Standards and conditions regarding the sale, 13 offer, or use of any fuel, vehicle, or other article 14 determined by the Board to constitute an air pollution 15 air-pollutionhazard; 16 (e) Alert and abatement standards relative to air 17 pollution air-pollutionepisodes or emergencies 18 constituting an acute danger to health or to the 19 environment; 20 (f) Requirements and procedures for the inspection 21 of any equipment, facility, vehicle, vessel, or aircraft 22 that may cause or contribute to air pollution; 23 (g) Requirements and standards for equipment and 24 procedures for monitoring contaminant discharges at their 25 sources, the collection of samples and the collection, 26 reporting and retention of data resulting from such 27 monitoring. 28 (B) The Board shall adopt sulfur dioxide regulations and 29 emission standards for existing fuel combustion stationary 30 emission sources located in all areas of the State of 31 Illinois, except the Chicago, St. Louis (Illinois) and Peoria 32 major metropolitan areas, in accordance with the following 33 requirements: 34 (1) Such regulations shall not be more restrictive HB3009 Engrossed -5- LRB9109978ACtm 1 than necessary to attain and maintain the "Primary 2 National Ambient Air Quality Standards for Sulfur 3 Dioxide" and within a reasonable time attain and maintain 4 the "Secondary National Ambient Air Quality Standards for 5 Sulfur Dioxide." 6 (2) Such regulations shall be based upon ambient 7 air quality monitoring data insofar as possible, 8 consistent with regulations of the United States 9 Environmental Protection Agency. To the extent that air 10 quality modeling techniques are used for setting 11 standards, such techniques shall be fully described and 12 documented in the record of the Board's rulemaking 13 proceeding. 14 (3) Such regulations shall provide a mechanism for 15 the establishment of emission standards applicable to a 16 specific site as an alternative to a more restrictive 17 general emission standard. The Board shall delegate 18 authority to the Agency to determine such specific site 19 emission standards, pursuant to regulations adopted by 20 the Board. 21 (4) Such regulations and standards shall allow all 22 available alternative air quality control methods 23 consistent with federal law and regulations. 24 (C) (1) No later than December 1, 2000, The Board may25 not adopt any regulation banning the burning of landscape26 waste throughout the State generally.the Board shall 27 may, by rule, regulation, restrict orprohibit the open 28 burning of landscape waste within any geographical area 29 of the State that is classified on the effective date of 30 this amendatory Act of the 91st General Assembly as a 31 moderate, serious, severe, or extreme non-attainment area 32 for ozone under Section 181 of the federal Clean Air Act. 33 Initial rules adopted to implement this amendatory Act of 34 the 91st General Assembly shall take effect on July 1, HB3009 Engrossed -6- LRB9109978ACtm 1 2001.

For the purposes of this 23 subsection, "farm" has the same meaning as under Section 24 1-60 of the Property Tax Code. 25 (4) A home rule unit may not regulate the open 26 burning of landscape waste in a manner inconsistent with 27 the regulation of open burning of landscape waste by the 28 State under this Section, unless the home rule unit has, 29 prior to the effective date of rules adopted by the Board 30 under subdivision (1), adopted ordinances or regulations 31 relating to the open burning of landscape waste and those 32 ordinances or regulations remain in effect. This Section 33 is a limitation under subsection (i) of Section 6 of 34 Article VII of the Illinois Constitution on the HB3009 Engrossed -7- LRB9109978ACtm 1 concurrent exercise by home rule units of powers and 2 functions exercised by the State. 3 (D) The Board shall adopt regulations requiring the 4 owner or operator of a gasoline dispensing system that 5 dispenses more than 10,000 gallons of gasoline per month to 6 install and operate a system for the recovery of gasoline 7 vapor emissions arising from the fueling of motor vehicles 8 that meets the requirements of Section 182 of the federal 9 Clean Air Act (42 USC 7511a). These regulations shall apply 10 only in areas of the State that are classified as moderate, 11 serious, severe or extreme non-attainment areas for ozone 12 pursuant to Section 181 of the federal Clean Air Act (42 USC 13 7511), but shall not apply in such areas classified as 14 moderate non-attainment areas for ozone if the Administrator 15 of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency promulgates 16 standards for vehicle-based (onboard) systems for the control 17 of vehicle refueling emissions pursuant to Section 202(a)(6) 18 of the federal Clean Air Act (42 USC 7521(a)(6)) by November 19 15, 1992. 20 (E) The Board shall not adopt or enforce any regulation 21 requiring the use of a tarpaulin or other covering on a 22 truck, trailer, or other vehicle that is stricter than the 23 requirements of Section 15-109.1 of the Illinois Vehicle 24 Code.
