    Due to a court ruling, the federal Clean Air Interstate Rule (CAIR) was replaced by the Cross-State Air Pollution Rule (CSAPR) on January 1, 2015.  Although Massachusetts is not subject to the new rule, facilities in the state must continue to monitor and report nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions to the EPA Clean Air Markets Division.
