On February 28, 2013, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) published a notice of public meeting and availability of the preliminary analysis in the Federal Register (78 FR 13563) to make available and invite comments on the preliminary analysis for general service fluorescent lamps and incandescent reflector lamps energy conservation standards. The notice provided for the submission of comments by April 15, 2013, and comments will also be accepted at a public meeting to be held on April 9, 2013. The Appliance Standards Awareness Project (ASAP) and the National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) jointly requested a four-week extension of the comment period. ASAP and NEMA stated the additional time was needed for interested parties to consider and respond to the preliminary technical support document and public meeting presentation, and prepare and submit comments accordingly.
DOE has determined that an extension of the public comment period is appropriate based on the foregoing reason and is hereby extending the comment period. DOE will consider any comments received by midnight of May 13, 2013, and deems any comments received by that time to be timely submitted.
