which such person  knows or  should know contains  a concentration  of

sulfur in excess of 0.05 percent (by weight) or which fails to meet  a

cetane index  minimum of  40 or  such equivalent  alternative aromatic

level as prescribed by the Administrator under subsection (i)(2).".

SEC. 216. FUEL VOLATILITY.

   Section 211 of  the Clean Air Act  (42 U.S.C. 7545) is  amended by

adding the following new subsection at the end thereof:

      "(h) Reid Vapor  Pressure Requirements.- "(1)  Prohibition.-Not

   later than 6 months  after the date of the enactment of  the Clean

   Air Act  Amendments of  1990, the  Administrator shall  promulgate

   regulations  making it  unlawful for  any person  during  the high

   ozone season (as  defined by the Administrator) to sell, offer for

   sale, dispense, supply, offer

   for supply, transport, or introduce into commerce gasoline  with a

   Reid Vapor  Pressure  in excess  of  9.0  pounds per  square  inch

   (psi). Such regulations  shall also establish more  stringent Reid

   Vapor  Pressure   standards  in  a   nonattainment  area  as   the

   Administrator  finds  necessary to  generally  achieve  comparable

   evaporative emissions  (on a  per-vehicle basis)  in nonattainment

   areas,  taking  into  consideration  the  enforceability  of  such

   standards, the need  of an area for emission control, and economic

   factors.

      "(2)  Attainment areas.-The  regulations under  this subsection

   shall not  make  it unlawful  for any  person to  sell, offer  for

   supply,  transport, or  introduce into  commerce  gasoline with  a

   Reid Vapor Pressure of 9.0  pounds per square inch (psi)  or lower

   in any  area designated under section  107 as  an attainment area.

   Notwithstanding  the  preceding  sentence,  the Administrator  may

   impose a  Reid vapor  pressure requirement  lower than  9.0 pounds

   per  square   inch  (psi)   in  any   area,   formerly  an   ozone

   nonattainment area, which  has been redesignated as  an attainment

   area.

      "(3)  Effective date;  enforcement.-The regulations  under this

   subsection shall provide that the requirements  of this subsection

   shall  take effect not later than  the high ozone season for 1992,

   and shall include such provisions as  the Administrator determines

   are necessary  to implement  and enforce the  requirements of this

   subsection.

      "(4) Ethanol waiver.-For fuel blends containing gasoline and 10

   percent  denatured  anhydrous  ethanol,  the Reid  vapor  pressure

   limitation  under this  subsection shall  be one pound  per square

   inch  (psi)  greater  than  the  applicable  Reid  vapor  pressure

   limitations established  under paragraph  (1); Provided,  however,

   That  a   distributor,  blender,   marketer,  reseller,   carrier,

   retailer, or  wholesale purchaser-consumer shall  be deemed to  be

   in full compliance  with the provisions of this subsection and the

   regulations  promulgated  thereunder  if  it can  demonstrate  (by

   showing receipt  of a certification  or other evidence  acceptable

   to the Administrator) that-

         "(A) the gasoline  portion of  the blend  complies with  the

      Reid  vapor pressure  limitations promulgated pursuant  to this

      subsection;

         "(B)  the ethanol portion  of the blend does  not exceed its

      waiver condition under subsection (f)(4); and

         "(C) no additional alcohol or other  additive has been added

      to increase the Reid  Vapor Pressure of the ethanol  portion of
