the issuance of such contract.

SEC. 232. ADOPTION BY OTHER STATES OF CALIFORNIA STANDARDS.

   Section 177 of  the Clean Air Act  (42 U.S.C. 7507) is  amended by

adding the following at the end thereof:

   "Nothing in  this section  or in  title II  of this  Act shall  be

construed as authorizing any such State to prohibit or limit, directly

or indirectly, the manufacture or sale of a new motor vehicle or motor

vehicle  engine that is certified  in California as meeting California

standards, or to  take any action of  any kind to create,  or have the

effect  of creating, a motor vehicle or motor vehicle engine different

than  a  motor  vehicle  or  engine  certified  in  California   under

California standards  (a `third vehicle')  or otherwise create  such a

`third vehicle'."

SEC. 233. STATES AUTHORITY TO REGULATE.

   (a)  Study.-The  Administrator  of  the  Environmental  Protection

Agency and the  Secretary of Transportation, in consultation  with the

Secretary  of Defense, shall commence a study and investigation of the

testing of  uninstalled aircraft engines  in enclosed test  cells that

shall address at a minimum the following issues  and such other issues

as they shall deem appropriate-

      (1) whether technologies exist to control some or all emissions

   of oxides of nitrogen from test cells;

      (2) the effectiveness of such technologies;

      (3) the cost of implementing such technologies;

      (4)  whether  such  technologies  affect  the  safety,  design,

   structure, operation, or performance of aircraft engines;

      (5) whether  such  technologies impair  the  effectiveness  and

   accuracy of aircraft  engine safety design, and  performance tests

   conducted in test cells; and

      (6)  the impact of not  controlling such oxides  of nitrogen in

   the   applicable  nonattainment  areas   and  on   other  sources,

   stationary and mobile, on oxides of nitrogen in such areas.

   (b)  Report, Authority To Regulate.-Not later than 24 months after

enactment of the Clean  Air Act Amendments of 1990,  the Administrator

of  the   Environmental  Protection   Agency  and  the   Secretary  of

Transportation  shall  submit  to  Congress  a  report  of  the  study

conducted under this section. Following the completion  of such study,

any  of the States may adopt or  enforce any standard for emissions of

oxides of nitrogen from test cells only after issuing a

public notice stating  whether such standards  are in accordance  with

the findings of the study.

SEC. 234. FUGITIVE DUST.

   (a) Prior to any use of the Industrial  Source Complex (ISC) Model

using  AP0942  Compilation  of   Air  Pollutant  Emission  Factors  to

determine the effect on air quality of  fugitive particulate emissions

from surface  coal mines,  for purposes of  new source  review or  for

purposes of demonstrating compliance with national ambient air quality

standards  for particulate matter applicable to periods of 24 hours or

less, under section 110  or parts C or D  of title I of the  Clean Air

Act,  the Administrator shall analyze  the accuracy of  such model and

emission factors and make  revisions as may be necessary  to eliminate

any  significant over-prediction  of  air quality  effect of  fugitive

particulate  emissions  from such  sources.  Such  revisions shall  be

completed not  later than 3 years  after the date of  enactment of the

Clean Air Act Amendments of 1990. Until such time as the Administrator

develops a  revised model  for surface  mine  fugitive emissions,  the
