Concise explanation of the particular statutory provisions under which the rule is enacted and how these provisions authorize or require the rule:

Subsection 19-2-104(3)(q) allows the Air Quality Board to implement the requirements of federal air pollution laws. Under Section 111(d) of the Clean Air Act (42 U.S.C. 7411(d)), EPA issues standards of performance for existing sources at the time standards are issued for new sources, and states are required to prepare plans and rules to implement the standards for existing sources.

The corresponding plan is incorporated by reference in Section R307-220-3. Rule R307-222 also includes necessary definitions, emission restrictions, control device specifications, and a compliance schedule, as required by 40 CFR 60 Subpart Ce.
