Public hearing: The proposal for which EPA is holding the public hearings was published in the Federal Register on May 20, 2011, and is available at: http://www.epa.gov/ttn/atw/pvc/pvcpg.html, and also in the docket identified below. The public hearings will provide interested parties the opportunity to present oral comments regarding the EPA's proposed national emission standards for hazardous air pollutants, including data, views, or arguments concerning the proposal. The EPA may ask clarifying questions during the oral presentations, but will not respond to the presentations at that time. Written statements and supporting information submitted during the comment period will be considered with the same weight as any oral comments and supporting information presented at the public hearing.
Commenters should notify Ms. Clemons if they will need specific equipment, or if there are other special needs related to providing comments at the hearings, such as a translator. The EPA will provide equipment for commenters to show overhead slides or make computerized slide presentations if we receive special requests in advance. Oral testimony will be limited to 5 minutes for each commenter. The EPA encourages commenters to provide the Agency with a copy of their oral testimony electronically (via e-mail or CD), or in hard copy form.
The hearing schedules, including lists of speakers, will be posted on EPA's Web sites http://www.epa.gov/ttn/atw/pvc/pvcpg.html. Verbatim transcripts of the hearings and written statements will be included in the docket for the rulemaking.
EPA will make every effort to follow the schedule as closely as possible on the day of the hearings; however, please plan for the hearing to run either ahead of schedule or behind schedule.
