referred to in subparagraph (B), in the Administrator's discretion,
apply any of the sanctions specified in section 179(b).
"(B) If the Governor does not submit a program as required under
paragraph (1), or if the Administrator disapproves any such program
submitted by the Governor under paragraph (1), in whole or in part, 18
months after the date required for such submittal or the date of such
disapproval, as the case may be, the Administrator shall apply
sanctions under section 179(b) in the same manner and subject to the
same deadlines and other conditions as are applicable in the case of a
determination, disapproval, or finding under section 179(a).
"(C) The sanctions under section 179(b)(2) shall not apply
pursuant to this paragraph in any area unless the failure to submit or
the disapproval referred to in subparagraph (A) or (B) relates to an
air pollutant for which such area has been designated a nonattainment
area (as defined in part D of title I).
"(3) If a program meeting the requirements of this title has not
been approved in whole for any State, the Administrator shall, 2 years
after the date required for submission of such a program under
paragraph (1), promulgate, administer, and enforce a program under
this title for that State.
"(e) Suspension.-The Administrator shall suspend the issuance of
permits promptly upon publication of notice of approval of a permit
program under this section, but may, in such notice, retain
jurisdiction over permits that have been federally issued, but for
which the administrative or judicial review process is not complete.
The Administrator shall continue to administer and enforce federally
issued permits under this title until they are replaced by a permit
issued by a permitting program. Nothing in this subsection should be
construed to limit the Administrator's ability to enforce permits
issued by a State.
"(f) Prohibition.-No partial permit program shall be approved
unless, at a minimum, it applies, and ensures compliance with, this
title and each of the following:
"(1) All requirements established under title IV applicable to
"(2) All requirements established under section 112 applicable
to `major sources', `area sources,' and `new sources'.
"(3) All requirements of title I (other than section 112)
applicable to sources required to have a permit under this title.
Approval of a partial program shall not relieve the State of its
obligation to submit a complete program, nor from the application
of any sanctions under this Act for failure to submit an
approvable permit program.
"(g) Interim Approval.-If a program (including a partial permit
program) submitted under this title substantially meets the
requirements of this title, but is not fully approvable, the
Administrator may by rule grant the program interim approval. In the
notice of final rulemaking, the Administrator shall specify the
changes that must be made before the program can receive full
approval. An interim approval under this subsection shall expire on a
date set by the Administrator not later than 2 years after such
approval, and may not be renewed. For the period of any such interim
approval, the provisions of subsection (d)(2), and the obligation of
the Administrator to promulgate a program under this title for the
State pursuant to subsection (d)(3), shall be suspended. Such
provisions and such obligation of the Administrator shall apply after
