SEC. 224. HIGH ALTITUDE TESTING.

   Section 215 of  the Clean Air Act  (42 U.S.C. 7549) is  amended by

adding the following at the end thereof:

   "(e) High Altitude  Testing.-(1) The Administrator  shall promptly

establish  at least  one testing  center (in  addition to  the testing

centers existing  on the date  of the enactment  of the Clean  Air Act

Amendments  of 1990) located at  a site that  represents high altitude

conditions,  to  ascertain in  a  reasonable manner  whether,  when in

actual use throughout  their useful life (as  determined under section

202(d)),  each class  or  category of  vehicle  and engines  to  which

regulations  under  section  202   apply  conforms  to  the  emissions

standards  established  by  such  regulations. For  purposes  of  this

subsection,  the  term  `high  altitude  conditions'  refers  to  high

altitude as defined in  regulations of the Administrator in  effect as

of the date of the enactment of the Clean Air Act Amendments of 1990.

   "(2)  The Administrator,  in  cooperation  with the  Secretary  of

Energy  and  the  Administrator   of  the  Urban  Mass  Transportation

Administration,  and such  other agencies  as the  Administrator deems

appropriate,  shall establish  a  research  and technology  assessment

center to provide for the development and evaluation of less-polluting

heavy-duty engines and fuels for use in buses, heavy-duty

trucks, and non-road engines and vehicles, which shall be located at a

high-altitude  site  that   represents  high-altitude  conditions.  In

establishing and funding  such a center, the Administrator  shall give

preference  to  proposals  which  provide for  local  cost-sharing  of

facilities and recovery  of costs of operation  through utilization of

such facility for the purposes of this section.

   "(3) The  Administrator shall  designate  at least  one center  at

high-altitude conditions to provide research on after-market  emission

components, dual-fueled  vehicles and conversion kits,  the effects of

tampering  on  emissions equipment,  testing  of  alternate fuels  and

conversion kits,  and the development of  curricula, training courses,

and  materials  to  maximize   the  effectiveness  of  inspection  and

maintenance programs as  they relate to promoting effective control of

vehicle  emissions at  high-altitude elevations.  Preference shall  be

given to existing vehicle emissions testing and  research centers that

have  established  reputations  for  vehicle  emissions  research  and
