Background: The Advisory Council on Clean Air Compliance Analysis (Council) is a Federal advisory committee chartered under the Federal Advisory Committee Act (FACA), as amended, 5 U.S.C., App. The Council is charged with providing advice, information and recommendations to the Agency on the economic issues associated with programs implemented under the Clean Air Act and its Amendments. Pursuant to a requirement under section 812 of the 1990 Clean Air Act Amendments, EPA conducts periodic studies to assess the benefits and the costs of the Clean Air Act. The Council has been the chief reviewing body for these studies and has issued advice on a retrospective study issued in 1997, a prospective study issued in 1999, and, since 2003, analytic blueprints for a second prospective study on the costs and benefits of clean air programs covering the years 1990-2020. EPA's Office of Air and Radiation (OAR) is proceeding to implement past advice offered by the Council on its forthcoming “Second Prospective Analysis.” OAR's Web site on these section 812 studies may be found at http://www.epa.gov/oar/sect812/.
The Council teleconference will provide an opportunity for members to receive an update from EPA/OAR on the status of its Second Prospective Analysis. Council members will discuss whether any additional advisory activities are needed prior to OAR's issuance of a full draft report. The meeting agenda and any background materials will be posted on the SAB Web site at: http://www.epa.gov/sab prior to the meeting.
