Comparison: State vs. Federal

Rules. Florida is authorized by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to administer its own air emissions permit program. The Florida Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) requires both major and nonmajor sources to obtain an operating permit. EPA granted full approval of Florida's Title V operating permit program for major sources effective October 31, 2001. However, Florida did not adopt the provisions of EPA Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Tailoring Rule.

Administration and enforcement. DEP's Division of Air Resource Management administers and enforces the state's air emissions permitting rules, except for provisions related to GHG emissions. The EPA will implement and enforce GHG emissions permitting requirements in Florida.
