Comparison: State vs. Federal

· Rules. The Nebraska Department of Environmental Quality’s (NDEQ) Title V operating permit program mirrors the federal requirements, with a few minor differences.

EPA has also approved a Title V permitting threshold for greenhouse gas emissions that is consistent with the current federal requirements. See the national section TITLE V for more information on the federal requirements.

· Administration and enforcement. NDEQ’s Air Quality Division administers and enforces the Title V program in Nebraska.
