Notice of public hearing.
On December 6, 2018, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Acting Administrator signed a proposed rule titled “Review of Standards of Performance for Greenhouse Gas Emissions from New, Modified, and Reconstructed Stationary Sources: Electric Utility Generating Units.” The EPA is announcing that it will hold a public hearing on the proposed action.

The EPA will hold a public hearing on Tuesday, January 8, 2019, in Washington, DC. Please refer to the SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION section for additional information on the public hearing.
The hearing will be held at the EPA WJC East Building, 1201 Constitution Avenue NW, Room 1153, Washington, DC 20004. The hearing will convene at 8:00 a.m. Eastern Standard Time (EST) and will conclude at 7:00 p.m. EST.
