ACTION:

Proposed rule; extension of comment period.

SUMMARY:

On December 5, 2003, the Department of Energy published a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (68 FR 68204) to revise the General Guidelines governing the Voluntary Reporting of Greenhouse Gases Program established by Section 1605(b) of the Energy Policy Act of 1992. The notice announced that the closing date for receiving public comments would be February 3, 2004. Several organizations requested that the comment period be extended to allow additional time for understanding and preparing written comments on the proposed revisions to the General Guidelines. The Department has agreed to extend the comment period to February 17, 2004. In addition, the Department intends, subsequently, to publish for comment a supplemental notice of proposed revised General Guidelines, simultaneously with the publication for public comment of planned Technical Guidelines.

DATES:

Comments must be received on or before February 17, 2004.
