On April 21, 2000, EPA incorrectly published a preliminary draft of this interpretative rule, rather than the final interpretative rule. EPA has withdrawn the incorrect rule; this file is the text of the final rule. The final rule corrects the effective date of the interpretive rule; the new date is 30 days following publication in the Federal Register. The rule also explains more completely EPA's reasons for publishing this interpretative rule.
The substance of the rule does not change with this republication, and there are no regulatory impacts. The rule clarifies that all new major source stationary combustion turbines are subject to case-by-case MACT determinations under sections 112(g) and 112(j) of the Clean Air Act, irrespective of whether they are part of a combined cycle system.
