Clean Air Implementation Act of 2015

This bill amends the Clean Air Act to require the review of national ambient air quality standards (NAAQS) in eight year intervals instead of five year intervals.

The EPA may take into account the technological feasibility of attaining NAAQS when revising those NAAQS.

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) must: (1) report on the extent to which foreign sources of air pollution impact areas trying to achieve or maintain the NAAQS, (2) submit that report within 24 months, and (3) suspend the implementation of the 2015 rule regarding NAAQS for ozone until the EPA submits that report. Deadlines in that rule must be extended for a period that is equal to the amount of time it takes the EPA to submit that report.
