   Section  211  of the  Clean  Air  Act  is  amended by  adding  the

following new subsection at the end thereof:

   "(n)  Prohibition  on  Leaded  Gasoline  for   Highway  Use.-After

December 31, 1995, it shall be  unlawful for any person to sell, offer

for sale, supply, offer for supply, dispense,  transport, or introduce

into commerce, for  use as fuel  in any motor  vehicle (as defined  in

section 219(2)) any gasoline which contains lead or lead additives.".

SEC. 221. FUEL AND FUEL ADDITIVE IMPORTERS.

   Section  211  of the  Clean  Air  Act  is amended  by  adding  the

following new subsection at the end thereof:

   "(o) Fuel  and Fuel  Additive Importers  and Importation.-For  the

purposes of this section, the term `manufacturer' includes an importer

and the term `manufacture' includes importation.".

SEC. 222. NONROAD ENGINES AND VEHICLES.

   (a)  Emission Standards.-Section  213  of  the Clean  Air  Act (42

U.S.C. 7547) is amended to read as follows:  

"SEC. 213. NONROAD ENGINES AND VEHICLES.

   "(a) Emissions  Standards.-(1) The Administrator  shall conduct  a

study of  emissions from nonroad  engines and nonroad  vehicles (other

than  locomotives or engines used in locomotives) to determine if such

emissions cause,  or significantly contribute to,  air pollution which

may reasonably  be anticipated to  endanger public health  or welfare.

Such study  shall be completed  within 12  months of the  date of  the

enactment of the Clean Air Act Amendments of 1990.

   "(2)  After  notice  and  opportunity  for   public  hearing,  the

Administrator shall determine within 12 months after completion of the

study  under  paragraph (1),  based upon  the  results of  such study,

whether emissions of carbon monoxide, oxides of nitrogen, and volatile

organic compounds  from new  and existing nonroad  engines or  nonroad

vehicles  (other than locomotives or  engines used in locomotives) are

significant contributors to ozone or carbon monoxide concentrations in

more than 1 area which  has failed to attain the national  ambient air

quality  standards for  ozone or  carbon monoxide.  Such determination

shall be included in the regulations under paragraph (3).

   "(3)  If  the  Administrator  makes  an affirmative  determination

under paragraph (2)  the Administrator shall,  within 12 months  after

completion of the study under paragraph (1), promulgate (and from time

to  time  revise)  regulations  containing   standards  applicable  to

emissions  from those classes or categories of new nonroad engines and

new  nonroad  vehicles (other  than  locomotives  or engines  used  in

locomotives)  which   in  the   Administrator's  judgment   cause,  or

contribute to, such  air pollution. Such  standards shall achieve  the

greatest  degree   of  emission   reduction  achievable   through  the

application of  technology which the Administrator  determines will be

available for the engines  or vehicles to which such  standards apply,

giving  appropriate  consideration  to   the  cost  of  applying  such

technology within the period of time available to manufacturers and to

noise,  energy, and safety factors  associated with the application of

such technology. In determining what degree of reduction will be

available, the Administrator shall first consider standards equivalent

in stringency  to standards for  comparable motor vehicles  or engines

(if  any)  regulated  under  section  202,  taking  into  account  the

technological feasibility, costs,  safety, noise,  and energy  factors

associated  with   achieving,  as   appropriate,  standards  of   such
