AGENCY:

Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION:

Notice of Federal Advisory Committee Meeting Postponed and Rescheduled as a Teleconference.

SUMMARY:

Under the Federal Advisory Committee Act, Pub. L. 92463, EPA gives notice that the public meeting for the National Advisory Council for Environmental Policy and Technology (NACEPT) initially scheduled for March 7-8, 2013, was postponed due to the predicted inclement weather that closed the Federal Government. The NACEPT meeting has been rescheduled as a teleconference for April 4, 2013. NACEPT provides advice to the EPA Administrator on a broad range of environmental policy, technology, and management issues. NACEPT represents diverse interests from academia, industry, non-governmental organizations, and local, State, and tribal governments.

Purpose of Meeting: NACEPT will discuss and approve draft recommendations in response to the National Academy of Sciences' report on “Sustainability and the U.S. EPA.” NACEPT's second letter on sustainability will address two topics: (1) what strengths EPA can leverage to successfully deploy sustainability practices across the Agency, and (2) what 3-5 year breakthrough objectives can help bring about sustainability implementation. The agenda and meeting materials will be available at http://www.epa.gov/​ofacmo/​nacept/​cal-nacept.htm and http://www.regulations.gov under Docket ID: EPA-HQ-OA-2013-0122.

DATES:

NACEPT will now hold a teleconference meeting on Thursday, April 4, 2013, from 12:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. (EST). Due to budgetary uncertainties, EPA is announcing this teleconference with less than 15 calendar days public notice.
