Prohibits the Administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency from disapproving the State implementation plan, or promulgating a Federal implementation plan for the State, if the applicable plan for such State would not have been disapproved, and no Federal implementation plan promulgations would have been made, in the absence of such additional emissions.

Prohibits any judicial stay or injunctions against the Administrator or the State of California regarding any additional emissions attributable to electric power generation permitted solely by reason of this Act.
