from the article

The Clean Air Act defines a “major source” as a one that has the potential to emit 10 tons or more per year of any hazardous air pollutant, or 25 tons per year of any combination of hazardous air pollutants. For more than 20 years, EPA’s “once-in always-in” required major sources to remain subject to stricter control standards, even if they took steps to reduce their pollution below the threshold.

my interpretation is they are taking the "polluters" off of the major source list if they get the pollutants below the threshold. If they are above it or go above it they would get put back on. It sounds like it will reduce the burden/cost to the regulators and businesses that are following the rules now but weren't 20 years ago.
