   "(e) Permits.-Beginning (1) 36 months  after the promulgation of a

performance standard  under subsection (a) and  section 111 applicable

to a category of solid waste incineration units, or (2) the  effective

date of a permit program under title V in the State  in which the unit

is  located, whichever  is  later, each  unit  in the  category  shall

operate pursuant to a permit issued under this subsection and

this Act, each permit  for a solid waste incineration  unit combusting

municipal waste issued under this Act shall be issued for  a period of

up to  12 years  and shall  be reviewed  every 5  years after  date of

issuance  or reissuance.  Each  permit shall continue  in effect after

the  date  of  issuance until  the  date  of  termination, unless  the

Administrator or State determines  that the unit is not  in compliance

with  all  standards and  conditions contained  in  the permit.   Such

determination  shall be made at  regular intervals during  the term of

the permit,  such  intervals not  to exceed  5 years,  and only  after

incineration  unit  may  be  issued  under  this  Act  by  an  agency,

Administrator or the State shall require the owner or  operator of any

unit  to comply  with  emissions limitations  or  implement any  other

measures, if the Administrator or the  State determines that emissions

in  the  absence of  such limitations  or  measures may  reasonably be

anticipated to  endanger  public  health  or  the  environment.    The

Administrator's  determination  under  the  preceding  sentence  is  a

discretionary decision.
