EPA has received requests from several groups to extend the comment period for the “Toxics Release Inventory Burden Reduction Proposed Rule.” (70 FR 57822, October 4, 2005) These groups include Environmental Defense, the National Environmental Trust, the U.S. Public Interest Research Group, and the Working Group on Community Right-to-Know. These groups have requested additional time to conduct analysis of TRI data and prepare comments on the proposed rule. EPA has considered these comments and determined that extending the comment period is an appropriate action that will not cause a significant delay in evaluating comments on the proposed rule and promulgating the final rule. Therefore, EPA is extending the comment period on the October 4, 2005, proposed rule from December 5, 2005, until January 13, 2006. All comments must be submitted by January 13, 2006, following the detailed instructions provided in the proposed rule.
