WASHINGTON – The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) will hold a public hearing on its proposed federal implementation plan for greenhouse gas permitting. The federal plan would allow EPA to issue permits for large GHG emitters located in states unable to address these emissions under their Clean Air Act permitting program. This would be a temporary measure that is in place until the state can revise its own plan and resume responsibility for permitting.

The hearing will begin at 9:00 a.m. and continue until 6:00 p.m. EDT time, or later if necessary, at the following location:

WHO: EPA officials

WHAT: Public hearing

WHEN: September 14, 2010

WHERE: EPA Ariel Rios East Building, Room 1153

Washington, D.C.

The public may register on the day of the hearing, and will be worked into openings in the schedule of speakers.

EPA also will accept written comments on the proposed standards until October 14, 2010.
