Approval and Promulgation of Air Quality Implementation Plans; Arizona; Nonattainment Plan for the Miami SO2
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is proposing to approve an Arizona state implementation plan (SIP) revision for attaining the 1-hour sulfur dioxide (SO2) primary national ambient air quality standard (NAAQS or ``standard'') for the Miami SO2 nonattainment area (NAA).
