FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Throughout this document whenever ‘‘we,’’ ‘‘us,’’ or ‘‘our’’ is used, we mean the EPA. On February 12, 2014, we published in the Federal Register a proposed rule on the flexible permit program in Texas. In the proposal, we requested comment by March 14, 2014. We received a request from the Environmental Integrity Project on February 27, 2014, to extend the comment period to a total of 90 days from the original 30 day public comment period. After careful analysis, we decided to extend the comment period out an additional 21 days. The extension length was based on providing commenters an additional 17 days following the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) public hearing scheduled for March 18, 2014. This extension will provide an opportunity for submission of rebuttal and supplementary information until April 4, 2014.
