This status report is in response to the requirements of section 112(s) of the CAA of 1990, in which Congress has requested the Administrator to "prepare and transmit to the Congress a comprehensive report on the measures taken by the Agency and by the States to implement the provisions of this section."
This report is the second section 112(s) Report to Congress. It is formatted differently from the first section 112(s) Report to Congress, EPA/453/R-93-024, dated August 1993. The first report documented individual standards, studies, and a number of programs called for under section 112. The current report addresses, in Section III, the four topics specifically requested by the 1990 CAA, including the infrastructure needed to carry out these programs. Additionally, the report discusses in Section IV, achievements made in the regulation of Solid Waste Combustion under Section 129.
