EPA Posts Updates on Clean Air Act Repeals and Delays

Posted on 11/9/2017 by Roger Marks

In today’s Federal Register, US EPA posted additional information regarding its efforts to repeal or delay three recently finalized Clean Air Act requirements. As we reported in August, EPA faces pushback from environmental groups and State Attorneys General who want the latest Clean Air Act protections to remain in place.

Clean Power Plan Repeal: Meeting and Extended Comment Period

The public meeting will be held November 28 and 29 at the West Virginia Capitol Complex in Charleston, WV, and may be extended to November 30 based on the volume of requests received.

See the Federal Register for details on how to register or speak during the meeting.

EPA also announced that the comment period for the proposed repeal will remain open until January 16, 2018.

2-Year Stay of NSPS Rules for Oil and Gas Methane Emissions

This week, EPA provided additional information regarding its legal authority to issue the stay and the challenges industry faces complying with the more stringent NSPS rules.

Public comments on EPA’s stay of the NSPS for oil and gas facilities are due by December 8, 2017.
