Notice of action denying petition for reconsideration.


The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is providing notice of its response to a petition for reconsideration of a rule published in the Federal Register on December 3, 2012, addressing Clean Air Act regional haze planning requirements for the State of Michigan. The petition, submitted on January 17, 2013, on behalf of St. Marys Cement (SMC), asked EPA to reconsider its action promulgating emission limits representing best available retrofit technology for SMC's facility in Charlevoix, Michigan. EPA has denied the petition by action signed February 20, 2014, for reasons that EPA explains in the document denying SMC's petition.
