   tional  ambient air  quality standard for  carbon monoxide in that

   portion within the period required  under this part the  State may

   petition the Administrator  to make a finding that the State would

   have been able to  make such demonstration but for the  failure of

   one or more other  States in which other portions of the  area are

   located  to commit to the  implementation of all measures required

   under  section  187  (relating  to  plan  submissions  for  carbon

   monoxide  nonattainment areas).  If  the Administrator  makes such

   finding,  in the  portion  of the  nonattainment area  within  the

   State  submitting such  petition,  no  sanction shall  be  imposed

   under section  179 or  under any other  provision of this  Act, by

   reason of the failure to make such demonstration.

   "(f) Reclassified  Areas.-Each State containing  a carbon monoxide

nonattainment area reclassified under section 186(b)(2) shall meet the

requirements of subsection (b)  of this section, as may  be applicable

to  the area as reclassified, according to the schedules prescribed in

connection with  such requirements, except that  the Administrator may

adjust any applicable deadlines (other than the attainment date) where

such deadlines are shown to be infeasible.

   "(g)  Failure   of  Serious  Area   to  Attain  Standard.-If   the

Administrator  determines under  section 186(b)(2)  that the  national

primary  ambient air quality standard for carbon monoxide has not been

attained  in a  Serious Area  by the  applicable attainment  date, the

State shall  submit a plan revision for the area within 9 months after

the date of such determination. The plan revision shall provide that a

program  of  incentives  and  requirements  as  described  in  section

182(g)(4)  shall be  applicable  in the  area,  and such  program,  in

combination with other elements of the revised plan, shall be adequate

to  reduce the total  tonnage of emissions  of carbon monoxide  in the

area by at least 5 percent per year in each year after approval of the

plan revision and  before attainment of  the national primary  ambient

air quality standard for carbon monoxide.".
