Start Preamble


Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).


Proposed rule; notice of change to public comment period.


This document is to inform the public of a correction to the proposed national emission standards for hazardous air pollutants (NESHAP) for surface coating of automobiles and light-duty trucks that were published in the Federal Register on December 24, 2002 (67 FR 78612). As published, written comments on the proposed rule were to be submitted to EPA on or before February 7, 2003. Today, we are providing notice that the period for public comment is being extended and will end on February 24, 2003 (a 60-day public comment period).

Additionally, the December 24, 2002 Federal Register document stated that if anyone contacts EPA requesting to speak at a public hearing, they should do so by January 3, 2003. We are extending the period to request a public hearing to January 13, 2003 (20 days).

Finally, the Federal Register document stated that, if requested, a public hearing would be held approximately 15 days after the date of publication of the notice in the Federal Register. Today's document corrects the date of the hearing. It will be held, if requested, on January 27, 2003 (approximately 30 days after the date of publication of the proposal in the Federal Register).
