   to in subsection  (a), (b), (c), or  (d) of this section  and such

   set of standards is,  in the aggregate, at least as  protective of

   public health  and welfare as  the otherwise applicable  standards

   set forth in section 242 and subsection  (a), (b), (c), or (d)  of

   this  section,  such set  of California  standards shall  apply to

   clean-fuel  vehicles in  such  category in  lieu of  the standards

   otherwise applicable  under section 242  and subsection (a),  (b),

   (c), or (d) of this section, as the case may be.

      "(2)  Multiple   sets  of  carb  standards.-If   the  State  of

   California  promulgates regulations  establishing and implementing

   several  different  sets  of  standards  applicable  in California

   pursuant to  a waiver approved under  section 209  to any category

   of vehicles  referred to in  subsection (a), (b),  (c), or (d)  of

   this section and each of such sets of California standards  is, in

   the  aggregate,  at  least  as  protective  of public  health  and

   welfare  as  the  otherwise  applicable  standards  set  forth  in

   section 242 and subsection (a),  (b), (c), or (d) of this section,

   such  standards  shall  be   treated  as  `qualifying   California

   standards' for purposes of this

   paragraph.   Where more than one  set of  qualifying standards are

   established  and administered  by  the  State of  California,  the

   least  stringent  set  of  qualifying  California  standards shall

   apply  to  the  clean-fuel  vehicles  concerned  in  lieu  of  the

   standards otherwise applicable to such vehicles  under section 242

   and this section.

   "(f) Less  Stringent CARB  Standards.-If the Low-Emission  Vehicle

and Clean  Fuels Regulations  of the  California  Air Resources  Board

applicable  to any category of vehicles referred to in subsection (a),

(b),  (c), or (d) of this section  are modified after the enactment of

the Clean  Air Act of 1990  to provide an emissions  standard which is

less stringent  than the  otherwise applicable standard  set forth  in

subsection (a), (b), (c),  or (d), or if any  effective date contained

in  such regulations is delayed, such modified standards or such delay

(or both,  as the case may be) shall  apply, for an interim period, in

lieu of  the standard  or  effective date  otherwise applicable  under

subsection  (a), (b),  (c),  or (d)  to any  vehicles covered  by such

modified standard or delayed effective  date. The interim period shall

be  a period of  not more than  2 model years  from the effective date

otherwise applicable  under subsection (a),  (b), (c),  or (d).  After

such  interim period, the  otherwise applicable standard  set forth in

subsection  (a), (b), (c),  or (d) shall  take effect  with respect to

such vehicles (unless subsequently replaced under subsection (e)).

   "(g) Not  Applicable to  Heavy-Duty Vehicles.-Notwithstanding  any

provision of  the Low-Emission Vehicle and Clean  Fuels Regulations of

the California Air Resources Board nothing in this section shall apply

to heavy-duty engines in vehicles of more than 8,500 lbs. GVWR.

"SEC. 244. ADMINISTRATION AND ENFORCEMENT AS PER CALIFORNIA STANDARDS.

   "Where  the  numerical  clean-fuel  vehicle  standards  applicable

under this part to  vehicles of not more than 8,500  lbs. GVWR are the

same as  numerical emission  standards applicable in  California under

the Low-Emission Vehicle and Clean Fuels Regulations of the California

Air Resources Board (`CARB'), such standards shall be administered and

enforced by the Administrator-

      "(1) in the  same manner and  with the same flexibility  as the

   State  of  California  administers   and  enforces   corresponding
