Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION:

Notice; correction.

SUMMARY:

On Wednesday, June 27, 2001, EPA published two notices in the Federal Register addressing the Report to the President on the impacts of the New Source Review (NSR) permitting program on utility and refinery capacity, energy efficiency, and environmental protection. The first notice, at 66 FR 34183, was a notice of public meetings. The second notice, at 66 FR 34191, was a notice of availability and opportunity to comment on a background paper. The EPA is issuing this notice to make several corrections to those two notices. The corrections address: (1) Times for additional evening sessions at each of four public meetings, (2) an incorrect fax number for the public docket, and (3) a clarification that the NEPD group recommended, but did not direct, the 90-day review of NSR.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

On June 27, 2001, the Environmental Protection Agency published two notices in the Federal Register that deal with the Agency's review of the New Source Review permitting program to assess its impact on new utility and refinery generation capacity, energy efficiency, and environmental protection. The “Summary” sections of each of the notices incorrectly state that “The National Energy Policy Development Group, under the direction of Vice President Richard Cheney, has directed EPA, in consultation with the Secretary of Energy and other relevant agencies, to review the Agency's New Source Review (NSR) program, including administrative interpretation and implementation, and report to the President within 90 days on the impact of the regulations on investment in new utility and refinery generation capacity, energy efficiency, and environmental protection.” Because the National Energy Policy Development Group does not have authority to issue direction to EPA, this document corrects the notices to indicate that this review is being done under the direction of the EPA Administration. The first and third corrections in this notice address this issue.

The second correction in this notice identifies additional hours for the public meetings on the EPA's review of NSR. In addition to the day sessions identified in the June 27 notice, there will also be evening sessions from 6:30 to 7:30 each evening in each of the four cities for which public meetings are scheduled. Locations are also provided for the evening sessions. The most current information about the public meetings is available on the Internet at the following address: http://www.epa.gov/​air/​nsr-review.

Finally, the fourth correction in this notice corrects an improperly reported fax number for use submitting comments to the Air and Radiation Start Printed Page 36282Docket and Information Center. When submitting comments in any form, please specific docket number A-2001-19.
