Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 76, No. 143 / Tuesday, July 26, 2011 / Proposed Rules rulemaking. EPA has considered these requests and has decided to reopen the comment period for an additional 15 days from the date of publication of today’s rulemaking. This reopening is for the limited purpose of public review and comment on the potential impacts of the final CSAPR on EPA’s proposed rulemaking to approve Tennessee’s Regional Haze SIP. EPA does not anticipate any impacts from the CSAPR on the proposed rulemaking on the Tennessee Regional Haze SIP. As noted in the CSAPR, EPA has not conducted any technical analysis to determine whether compliance with the CSAPR would satisfy Regional Haze Best Available Retrofit Technology (BART)-related requirements for electric generating units (EGUs). For that reason, EPA has neither made any determinations nor established any presumptions that compliance with the CSAPR satisfies BART-related requirements for EGUs. EPA intends to undertake a separate analysis to determine if compliance with the CSAPR would provide sufficient reductions to satisfy BART requirements for EGUs in accordance with Regional Haze Rule requirements for alternative BART compliance options as soon as practicable following official promulgation of the CSAPR.
