applicable  to that source and  which reflects the  degree of emission

reduction  achievable through  the application  of the best  system of

continuous  emission  reduction which  (taking into  consideration the

cost  of  achieving such  emission reduction,  and any  nonair quality

health   and  environmental  impact   and  energy   requirements)  the

Administrator  determines has  been adequately  demonstrated for  that

category of sources.

SEC. 407. SENSE OF THE CONGRESS ON EMISSION REDUCTIONS COSTS.

   It is the sense of  the Congress that the Clean Air Act Amendments

achieving  the required reductions in emissions  of sulfur dioxide and

oxides of nitrogen  among sources  in the United  States. Broad  based

taxes  and emissions fees that would provide  for payment of the costs

of achieving  required emissions  reductions by  any party  or parties

the  methods utilized by each province in making those reductions, the

costs  to each province and the employment impacts in each province of
