Abstract:
Today's proposal would revise regulations that EPA has issued to set national standards for emissions of toxic air pollutants from industrial sources. This proposed amendment would clarify which discretionary authorities contained in each regulation can be delegated to state, local, and tribal air pollution control agencies (S/L/Ts). Discretionary authorities are certain regulatory requirements, such as when to submit compliance reports or approval of minor monitoring changes. Under the Clean Air Act, the approval of some of these authorities can be delegated to S/L/Ts. For example, when an industry seeks to change their schedule for submitting compliance reports, the S/L/Ts can either approve or disapprove their request. Other emission standard requirements, such as approving alternative emission standards, cannot be delegated. This file is the text of a fact sheet summarizing the proposal.
