Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).


Proposed rule; extension of public comment period.


The EPA is announcing the extension of the public comment period on the proposed decision not to regulate national emission standards for hazardous air pollutants for chlorine production facilities. We originally requested comments on the proposed rule by September 3, 2002 (67 FR 44713, July 3, 2002). We are extending the deadline for written comments to October 3, 2002 because the docket for the proposed rule, which contains pertinent information related to the proposal, was not available for inspection prior to July 31, 2002.


Comments may be submitted by October 3, 2002.

By U.S. Postal Service, send comments (in duplicate if possible) to: Air and Radiation Docket and Information Center (6102), Attention Docket Number A-2002-09, U.S. EPA, 1200 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW., Washington, DC 20460.
