SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The purpose of the public hearings is to provide the public an opportunity to present oral comments regarding NHTSA and EPA’s proposal for ‘‘Greenhouse Gas Emissions Standards and Fuel Efficiency Standards for Medium- and Heavy-Duty Engines and Vehicles.’’ These hearings also offer an opportunity for the public to provide oral comments regarding NHTSA’s draft Environmental Impact Statement, accompanying the proposed NHTSA fuel efficiency standards. The proposed rules would establish a comprehensive Heavy-Duty National Program that will reduce greenhouse gas emissions and increase fuel efficiency for on-road heavy-duty vehicles. NHTSA’s proposed fuel consumption standards and EPA’s proposed carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions standards would be tailored to each of three regulatory categories: (1) Combination Tractors; (2) Heavy-duty Pickup Trucks and Vans; and (3) Vocational Vehicles, as well as gasoline and diesel heavy-duty engines. EPA’s proposed hydrofluorocarbon emissions standards would apply to air conditioning systems in tractors, pickup trucks, and vans, and EPA’s proposed nitrous oxide (N2O) and methane (CH4) emissions standards would apply to all heavy-duty engines, pickup trucks, and vans. The proposal also includes a request for comment on possible alternative CO2-equivalent approaches for light-duty vehicles in model years 2012–14. The proposal for which EPA and NHTSA are holding the public hearings will be published in the near future in the Federal Register and is available at the Web pages listed above under FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT and also in the rulemaking dockets. NHTSA’s draft Environmental Impact Statement is available on the NHTSA Web page and in NHTSA’s rulemaking docket, both E:\FR\FM\01NOP1.SGM 01NOP1 67060 Federal Register / Vol. 75, No. 210 / Monday, November 1, 2010 / Proposed Rules erowe on DSK5CLS3C1PROD with PROPOSALS-1 referenced above. Once NHTSA and EPA learn how many people have registered to speak at each public hearing, we will allocate an appropriate amount of time to each participant, allowing time for necessary breaks. In addition, we will reserve a block of time for anyone else in the audience who wants to give testimony. For planning purposes, each speaker should anticipate speaking for approximately ten minutes, although we may need to shorten that time if there is a large turnout. We request that you bring three copies of your statement or other material for the EPA and NHTSA panels. To accommodate as many speakers as possible, we prefer that speakers not use technological aids (e.g., audio-visuals, computer slideshows). However, if you plan to do so, you must notify the contact persons in the FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT section above. You also must make arrangements to provide your presentation or any other aids to NHTSA and EPA in advance of the hearing in order to facilitate set-up. NHTSA and EPA will conduct the hearings informally, and technical rules of evidence will not apply. We will arrange for a written transcript of each hearing and keep the official record of each hearing open for 30 days to allow speakers to submit supplementary information. Panel members may ask clarifying questions during the oral presentations, but will not respond to the presentations at that time. You may make arrangements for copies of the transcripts directly with the court reporter. Written statements and supporting information submitted during the comment period will be considered with the same weight as oral comments and supporting information presented at the public hearings. Written comments on the proposal must be postmarked by 60 days after the date of publication of the proposal in the Federal Register. Dated: October 26, 2010.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The purpose of the public hearings is to 
provide the public an opportunity to present oral comments regarding 
NHTSA and EPA's proposal for ``Greenhouse Gas Emissions Standards and 
Fuel Efficiency Standards for Medium- and Heavy-Duty Engines and 
Vehicles.'' These hearings also offer an opportunity for the public to 
provide oral comments regarding NHTSA's draft Environmental Impact 
Statement, accompanying the proposed NHTSA fuel efficiency standards. 
The proposed rules would establish a comprehensive Heavy-Duty National

consumption standards and EPA's proposed carbon dioxide 
(CO2) emissions standards would be tailored to each of three
