A. The Department of Environmental Quality is authorized to use up to $300,000 the first year and $300,000 the second year from the Vehicle Emissions Inspection Program Fund to implement the provisions of Chapter 710, Acts of Assembly of 2002, which authorizes the department to operate a program to subsidize repairs of vehicles that fail to meet emissions standards established by the Air Pollution Control Board when the owner of the vehicle is financially unable to have the vehicle repaired.

B. Out of this appropriation, $625,000 the first year from the general fund is designated to support a portion of the program costs associated with the agency's administration of an air pollution program for major stationary sources of air pollution in accordance with Title V of the Federal Clean Air Act. The Department of Environmental Quality shall coordinate a meeting of stakeholders to determine amenable fees to generate revenue sufficient to support the full cost of the Title V federal Clean Air Act program in Virginia. In the event that stakeholders do not reach an agreement by November 1, 2012, on fees that should be charged to generate revenue sufficient to support the full cost of the program less $625,000 in the first year, and the full cost of the program in the second year, the state will consider transfer of the administration of the program to the United States Environmental Protection Agency.
