Startup, Shutdown, and Malfunction SIP Call Comment Period Extended

The EPA has announced an extension of the public comment period for its proposal rule "State Implementation Plans: Response to Petition for Rulemaking; Findings of Substantial Inadequacy; and SIP Calls to Amend Provisions Applying to Excess Emissions During Periods of Startup, Shutdown, and Malfunction." The EPA received numerous requests for extension of the comment period beyond the current deadline of April 11, 2013, and one request that it not extend the comment period by an additional 60 to 90 days, and in response to those requests the EPA is extending the comment period by an additional 30 days.

Comments on the proposed rule published February 22, 2013 must be received on or before May 13, 2013.
