This article shall remain of force and effect only so long as the federal Clean Air Act, 42 U.S.C. Section 7401, et seq., as amended, requires the State of Georgia to maintain and enforce the inspection plan and program provided for in this article in order to reduce the ambient air levels of ozone or carbon monoxide which exceed the levels specified by the National Ambient Air Quality Standards for such pollutants specified by the United States Environmental Protection Agency pursuant to said act.
