by the lesser of its  allowable 1985 emission rate or its  actual 1985

emission rate, divided by 2,000.  

"SEC. 406. ALLOWANCES FOR STATES WITH EMISSIONS RATES AT OR BELOW 0.80

LBS/MMBTU.

   "(a)  Election  of   Governor.-In  addition  to  basic   Phase  II

allowance allocations, upon the election of the Governor of any State,

with a 1985 state-wide  annual sulfur dioxide emissions rate  equal to

or less  than, 0.80  lbs/mmBtu,  averaged over  all fossil  fuel-fired

utility  steam generating  units, beginning  January 1, 2000,  and for

each  calendar   year  thereafter   until  and  including   2009,  the

Administrator  shall  allocate,  in  lieu  of  other  Phase  II  bonus

allowance allocations, allowances from the reserve created pursuant to

section 405(a)(2) to all such units in the State in an amount equal to

125,000  multiplied  by the  unit's  pro  rata  share  of  electricity

generated in  calendar year  1985 at  fossil fuel-fired  utility steam

units in all States eligible for the election.

   "(b)   Notification   of   Administrator.-Pursuant   to    section

403(a)(1), each Governor of a State eligible to make an election under

paragraph  (a) shall notify the Administrator of such election. In the

event  that  the Governor  of  any  such  State  fails to  notify  the

Administrator of  the Governor's  elections,  the Administrator  shall

allocate allowances pursuant to section 405.

   "(c) Allowances After January 1,  2010.-After January 1, 2010, the

Administrator  shall  allocate  allowances  to units  subject  to  the

provisions of this section pursuant to section 405.

"SEC. 407. NITROGEN OXIDES EMISSION REDUCTION PROGRAM.

   "(a) Applicability.-On  the date  that a  coal-fired utility  unit

becomes an affected unit pursuant to sections 404, 405, 409, or on the

date a  unit subject to  the provisions of  section 404(d) or  409(b),

must  meet the SO2 reduction requirements, each such unit shall become

an affected  unit for purposes of this section and shall be subject to

the emission limitations for nitrogen oxides set forth herein.

   "(b) Emission  Limitations.-(1)  Not  later than  eighteen  months

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

Administrator  shall by regulation establish annual allowable emission

limitations  for nitrogen  oxides  for the  types  of utility  boilers

listed

below,  which  limitations shall  not exceed  the rates  listed below:

Provided,  That  the Administrator  may set  a  rate higher  than that

listed for any  type of utility boiler if the Administrator finds that

the maximum listed rate for that  boiler type cannot be achieved using

low NOx burner technology. The maximum allowable emission rates are as

follows:

      "(A) for tangentially fired boilers, 0.45 lb/mmBtu;

      "(B)  for  dry  bottom  wall-fired boilers  (other  than  units

   applying cell burner  technology), 0.50 lb/mmBtu.    After January

   1,  1995, it shall  be unlawful  for any unit  that is an affected

   unit on that  date and is of the  type listed in this paragraph to

   emit nitrogen oxides in  excess of the  emission rates set by  the

   Administrator pursuant to this paragraph.

   "(2) Not later than January  1, 1997, the Administrator  shall, by

regulation, establish  allowable emission limitations  on a  lb/mmBtu,

annual average basis, for  nitrogen oxides for the following  types of

utility boilers:

      "(A) wet bottom wall-fired boilers;

      "(B) cyclones;
