AGENCY:

Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, Department of Energy.

ACTION:

Proposed rulemaking; date change.

SUMMARY:

The Department of Energy published a proposed rule in the Federal Register on January 4, 2010, concerning a public meeting and availability of the notice of proposed rulemaking (NOPR) regarding test procedures for walk-in coolers and walk-in freezers. This document changes the date of the public meeting, the date of the deadline for requesting to speak at the public meeting, and the date of the deadline for submitting written comments on the framework document because the scheduled public meeting of February 11, 2010, was cancelled due to inclement weather, which forced a Federal Government shutdown. The public meeting will now be held on Wednesday, March 24, 2010, beginning at 9 a.m. The close of the comment period has been changed to March 31, 2010 in order to accommodate comments received at the public meeting and comments that may be submitted based on issues raised at the public meeting.
