         baseline gasoline. Effec-

         tive in calendar year 2000  and thereafter, 25 percent shall

         be  substituted  for 15  percent  in  applying  this clause,

         except  that the  Administrator may  adjust such  25 percent

         requirement  to provide  for a  lesser or  greater reduction

         based  on technological feasibility, considering the cost of

         achieving  such  reductions  in   VOC  emissions.  No   such

         adjustment  shall  provide   for  less  than  a  20  percent

         reduction   below  the  aggregate  emissions   of  such  air

         pollutants from such  vehicles when using baseline gasoline.

         The reductions required under this clause shall be on a mass

         basis.

           "(ii)  Toxics.-During  the  entire  year,  the   aggregate

         emissions  of toxic  air pollutants  from  baseline vehicles

         when  using the  reformulated gasoline  shall be  15 percent

         below the  aggregate emissions of  toxic air pollutants from

         such  vehicles when  using  baseline gasoline.  Effective in

         calendar  year  2000 and  thereafter,  25  percent  shall be

         substituted for  15 percent in  applying this clause, except

         that   the   Administrator  may   adjust  such   25  percent

         requirement  to provide  for a  lesser or  greater reduction

         based on technological  feasibility, considering the cost of

         achieving such  reductions in toxic  air pollutants. No such

         adjustment  shall  provide   for  less  than  a  20  percent

         reduction  below   the  aggregate  emissions  of   such  air

         pollutants from such vehicles  when using baseline gasoline.

         The reductions required under this clause shall be on a mass

         basis.

   Any  reduction  greater  than  a   specific  percentage  reduction

   required under  this subparagraph shall  be treated as  satisfying

   such percentage reduction requirement.

      "(4) Certification procedures.-

         "(A)  Regulations.-The  regulations  under  this  subsection

      shall include  procedures under  which the Administrator  shall

      certify   reformulated   gasoline   as   complying   with   the

      requirements  established pursuant  to  this subsection.  Under

      such regulations, the Administrator shall  establish procedures

      for  any person to petition the Administrator to certify a fuel

      formulation, or  slate  of fuel  formulations. Such  procedures

      shall further  require that the Administrator  shall approve or

      deny  such  petition   within  180  days  of  receipt.  If  the

      Administrator fails to act within such 180-day period, the fuel

      shall  be deemed  certified until  the  Administrator completes

      action on the petition.

         "(B)  Certification;  equivalency.-The  Administrator  shall

      certify a  fuel formulation  or slate  of fuel  formulations as

      complying with this subsection if such fuel or fuels-

           "(i) comply with the requirements of paragraph (2), and

           "(ii)  achieve   equivalent  or   greater  reductions   in

         emissions of  ozone forming  volatile organic  compounds and

         emissions of  toxic air  pollutants than  are achieved  by a

         reformulated gasoline meeting the applicable requirements of

         paragraph (3).

         "(C) EPA  determination of  emissions level.-Within  1  year

      after  the enactment of the  Clean Air Act  Amendments of 1990,

      the  Administrator shall  determine the  level of  emissions of
