The SIP revision contains revised transportation conformity budgets for carbon monoxide and ozone precursors. These budgets were revised to reflect updated modeling estimates, as well as updated vehicle registration data. These budgets will help the State continue to maintain the carbon monoxide National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS) and to continue progress in attaining the 1-hour NAAQS for ozone in the Northern New Jersey-New York-Long Island nonattainment area (NAA).
