SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: rwilkins on PROD1PC63 with PROPOSALS General Information Extension of Public Comment Period We proposed the national emission standards for hazardous air pollutants (NESHAP) as part of our effort to comply with a court-ordered deadline that requires EPA to issue final standards for 10 area source categories listed pursuant to Clean Air Act sections VerDate Aug<31>2005 18:25 Nov 19, 2008 Jkt 217001 112(c)(3) and (k) by December 15, 2008 (Sierra Club v. Johnson, no. 01–1537, D.D.C., March 2006). To meet this deadline, we proposed NESHAP for nine area source categories in the chemical manufacturing sector. The proposal was published in the Federal Register on October 6, 2008 (73 FR 58352). We received several requests to extend the public comment period by up to 55 days. Commenters requested more time to review the information in the docket and prepare in-depth comments. We agree that the comment period should be extended to allow more time for interested parties to prepare comprehensive comments. At the request of EPA, the Court has extended EPA’s deadline for the nine area source categories at issue in the proposed rule from December 15, 2008, to May 15, 2009. Therefore, the public comment period will now end on January 5, 2009, rather than November 20, 2008.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

General Information

Extension of Public Comment Period

    We proposed the national emission standards for hazardous air 
pollutants (NESHAP) as part of our effort to comply with a court-
ordered deadline that requires EPA to issue final standards for 10 area 
source categories listed pursuant to Clean Air Act sections 112(c)(3) 
and (k) by December 15, 2008 (Sierra Club v. Johnson, no. 01-1537, 
D.D.C., March 2006). To meet this deadline, we proposed NESHAP for nine 
area source categories in the chemical manufacturing sector. The 
proposal was published in the Federal Register on October 6, 2008 (73 
FR 58352).
    We received several requests to extend the public comment period by 
up to 55 days. Commenters requested more time to review the information 
in the docket and prepare in-depth comments. We agree that the comment 
period should be extended to allow more time for interested parties to 
prepare comprehensive comments. At the request of EPA, the Court has 
extended EPA's deadline for the nine area source categories at issue in 
the proposed rule from December 15, 2008, to May 15, 2009. Therefore, 
the public comment period will now end on January 5, 2009, rather than 
November 20, 2008. (The public comment period is currently scheduled to 
end on November 20, 2008, instead of November 5, 2008, because a public 
hearing was requested and held on October 21, 2008.)

What should I consider as I prepare my comments for EPA?

1. Submitting CBI
    Do not submit information that you consider to be CBI 
electronically through http://www.regulations.gov or e-mail. Send or 
deliver information identified as CBI only to the following address:

Environmental Protection Agency, Office of Air Quality Planning and 
Standards, Research Triangle Park, NC 27711, Attention Docket ID EPA-

you claim to be CBI. For CBI information in a disk or CD-ROM that you 
mail to EPA, mark the outside of the disk or CD-ROM as CBI and then 
identify electronically within the disk or CD-ROM the specific 
information that is claimed as CBI. In addition to one complete version 
of the comment that includes information claimed as CBI, a copy of the 
comment that does not contain the information claimed as CBI must be 
submitted for inclusion in the public docket. Information so marked 
will not be disclosed except in accordance with procedures set forth in 
40 CFR part 2.

CBI, please consult the person identified in the FOR FURTHER
