acid deposition in the acid deposition sensitive areas listed 
pursuant to subdivision 1.  
    (b) By January 1, 1986, the agency shall adopt an acid 
deposition control plan to attain and maintain the acid 
deposition standard adopted under clause (a), addressing sources 
both inside and outside of the state which emit more than 100 
tons of sulphur dioxide per year.  The plan shall include an 
analysis of the estimated compliance costs for facilities 
emitting sulphur dioxide.  Any emission reductions required 
inside of the state shall be based on the contribution of 
sources inside of the state to acid deposition in excess of the 
standard.  
    (c) By January 1, 1990, sources located inside the state 
shall be in compliance with the provisions of the acid 
deposition control plan.
