SECTION 1. SHORT TITLE.

    This Act may be cited as the ``Transported Air Pollution Mitigation

SEC. 2. SIP REVISIONS FOR AREAS UPWIND OF OZONE NONATTAINMENT AREAS.

    (a) Requirements for All Areas.--Section 110(a) of the Clean Air 
Act is amended by inserting the following new paragraph after paragraph 
(3):
    ``(4) For each area (hereinafter in this paragraph referred to as 
an `upwind area') in a State which, as determined by the State, cause 
or significantly contribute to a violation of the ambient air quality 
standard for ozone in another area (hereinafter in this paragraph 
referred to as a `downwind area'), the State shall submit, within 1 
year of the date of enactment of this paragraph, a revision of the 
applicable implementation plan that includes a requirement that 
either--
            ``(A) the upwind area reduce emissions of each air 
        pollutant concerned by an amount determined by the State to be 
        necessary to mitigate impacts caused by the upwind region to 
        air pollution concentrations in the downwind region; or
            ``(B) the upwind region make payments to the State or to 
        such State's designated air quality district to compensate the 
        downwind area in such amounts as such State finds necessary to 
        pay for the costs of emission reduction measures required to be 
        undertaken in the downwind area.''.
    (b) Requirements for Moderate Ozone Nonattainment Areas.--Section 
182(b)(4) of the Clean Air Act is amended by inserting ``(A)'' after 
the side heading and by adding the following at the end thereof:
            ``(B) Within 1 year after the enactment of this 
        subparagraph each moderate area which the State determines to 
        cause or significantly contribute to a violation of the 
        national ambient air quality standards for ozone in a downwind 
        area (as identified by the State under section 110(a)(4)), the 
        State shall submit, immediately after the enactment of this 
        subparagraph, a revision to the applicable implementation plan 
        that includes all provisions necessary to provide for an 
        enhanced vehicle inspection program as described in paragraph 
        (3) of subsection (c) and the regulations of the Administrator 
        adopted pursuant to such paragraph.''.
    (c) Requirements for Maintenance Plans.--Subsection (a) 175A of the 
Clean Air Act is amended by adding the following at the end thereof: 
``Such plan shall also be amended within 1 year after the later of--
            ``(1) the date of enactment of the Transported Air 
        Pollution Mitigation Act of 1996, or
            ``(2) the date on which the request under section 107(d) is 
        submitted,
to include measures to provide for an enhanced vehicle inspection 
program as described in paragraph (3) of section 182(c) and the 
regulations of the Administrator adopted pursuant to such paragraph if 
the State determines that the area requesting redesignation is causing 
or significantly contributing to a violation of the national ambient 
air quality standards for ozone in a downwind area (as identified by 
the State under section 110(a)(4)).''.
