In today's action, EPA is providing additional time to submit public comment on the following proposed rules: Emissions standards for industrial, commercial, and institutional boilers and process heaters located at major sources (the major source boilers rule); emissions standards for industrial, commercial, and institutional boilers located at area sources (the area source boilers rule); and emissions standards for commercial and industrial solid waste incineration units (the CISWI rule). In the notices of proposed rulemaking for these rules, EPA established a deadline of July 19, 2010, for submission of public comments. On June 9, 2010, EPA extended the public comment period to August 3, 2010. 75 FR 32682.
