SEC. 219. REFORMULATED GASOLINE AND OXYGENATED GASOLINE.

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

adding the following at the end thereof:

   "(k) Reformulated Gasoline for Conventional Vehicles.-

      "(1)  EPA regulations.-Within 1 year after the enactment of the

   Clean  Air  Act  Amendments  of  1990,   the  Administrator  shall

   promulgate    regulations   under    this   section   establishing

   requirements   for   reformulated   gasoline   to   be   used   in

   gasoline-fueled vehicles  in specified  nonattainment areas.  Such

   regulations shall require  the greatest reduction in  emissions of

   ozone forming  volatile organic compounds  (during the high  ozone

   season) and emissions  of toxic air pollutants (during  the entire

   year)  achievable  through  the   reformulation  of   conventional

   gasoline, taking  into consideration  the cost  of achieving  such

   emission  reductions,  any  nonair-quality  and other  air-quality

   related health and  environmental impacts and energy requirements.

      "(2)  General  requirements.-The  regulations  referred  to  in

   paragraph (1)  shall  require  that reformulated  gasoline  comply

   with  paragraph (3) and  with each  of the  following requirements

   (subject to paragraph (7)):

         "(A)   NOx  emissions.-The emissions  of oxides  of nitrogen

      (NOx)  from  baseline  vehicles  when  using  the  reformulated

      gasoline shall be no  greater than the level of  such emissions

      from  such  vehicles  when  using  baseline  gasoline.  If  the
