LAWS OF MARYLAND

Ch. 240

STANDARD OR AMBIENT AIR QUALITY STANDARD LESS STRINGENT THAN
THE STANDARDS SET BY THE DEPARTMENT UNDER THIS TITLE.

(B) REQUESTING RULES OR REGULATIONS.

THE GOVERNING BODY OF ANY POLITICAL SUBDIVISION MAY ASK
THE DEPARTMENT TO ADOPT RULES AND REGULATIONS THAT SET MORE
RESTRICTIVE EMISSION STANDARDS OR AMBIENT AIR QUALITY
STANDARDS IN THAT POLITICAL SUBDIVISION.

REVISOR'S NOTE: This section is new language derived
without substantive change from former Article
43, §§ 693(b)(2) and 705.

In subsection (b) of this section, the defined
term "political subdivision" is substituted for

"local jurisdiction".

Throughout this section, the defined term
"emission standard" is substituted for the terms
"standards for emissions" and "emissions control
requirements and standards". There does not
appear to have been any legislative intent to
distinguish the emission standards referred to in
this section from the emission standards referred
to elsewhere in this title.

Throughout this section, the term "ambient air
quality standard" is substituted for "standards
for ... ambient air quality". There does not
appear to have been any legislative intent to
distinguish the standards for ambient air quality
referred to in this section from the ambient air
quality standards referred to elsewhere in this
title.

2-105. AIR POLLUTION EMERGENCY.

(A) ADVICE TO AND POWER OF THE GOVERNOR.

(1)  IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE RULES AND REGULATIONS
ADOPTED BY THE DEPARTMENT, THE SECRETARY SHALL ADVISE THE
GOVERNOR WHEN AN AIR POLLUTION EMERGENCY EXISTS OR IS
REASONABLY CERTAIN TO OCCUR.

(2)  WHEN SO ADVISED, THE GOVERNOR MAY ISSUE AN
EXECUTIVE ORDER THAT:

(I) PROCLAIMS AN AIR POLLUTION EMERGENCY;

AND

(II) REQUIRES THE IMMEDIATE ELIMINATION OF
SPECIFICALLY IDENTIFIABLE SOURCES OF AIR POLLUTION.

(B) POWER OF THE ATTORNEY GENERAL.
