On January 27, 2000, we solicited public comment on a supplemental proposal for the Federal Rulemaking for the FMC Facility in the Fort Hall PM-10 Nonattainment Area (65 FR 4466). In that supplemental proposal, we stated that we would accept written public comments on the supplemental proposal until February 28, 2000. We also stated that we would not hold a public hearing on the supplemental proposal unless one was requested and a sufficient reason for holding a hearing was provided.
Based on letters we received prior to publication of the supplemental proposal, we believe there is a significant public interest in the supplemental proposal. We have therefore decided to hold public hearings on the supplemental proposal in advance of a specific request during the public comment period. The public hearings will be held on:
Tuesday, February 29, 2000, 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m., Pocatello City Council Chambers, 711 North 9th, Pocatello, Idaho
Wednesday, March 1, 2000, 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m., Shoshone-Bannock Tribal Council Chambers, Agency Road and Bannock Drive, Fort Hall, Idaho
To accommodate the public hearings, we are also extending the deadline for receiving written public comments on the supplemental proposal to March 13, 2000.
