In response to a congressional request, GAO commented on states' enactment of laws to prevent the release into the atmosphere of benzene and gasoline vapors during automobile refuelling by installing equipment on gasoline pumps. GAO found that: (1) Illinois and Maryland are the only states with laws limiting the implementation of these controls; and (2) states that refuse to implement these controls may be subject to sanctions unless they submit an adequate state implementation plan to meet EPA ozone standards.
